Rotary Pathways – Walk/Cycle Way

The Rotary Pathways project started in 2002, has been a huge success. There are km’s of pathway connecting Bay View all the way to Havelock North. There are a number of different routes that can be taken and it’s a fun, safe and scenic way to explore Hawkes Bay.

The Northern point of the cycleway can be accessed from Snapper Park and offers a huge stretch of lovely coastal scenary along Bay View, Westshore beaches, Ahuriri and Marine Parade. It’s a nice smooth, flat pathway so is an excellent surface for walking, running or cycling.
