  • What a fantastic asset for New Plymouth. We rode our bikes from one end to the other, a very easy ride. Great to see so many people enjoying themselves, families strolling, people sitting eating...

  • There are several good trails to either ride your bike or walk thru town. You forget you are in a city when you are on the trails.

  • Stayed at the Millennium for a couple of days. I love to walk and the NP coastal walkway was amazing early in the morning. Well lit up and clearly marked. Great place to walk, run or just chill out. On Matariki they had the Festival of Lights which was amazing.
  • Amazing On your bikes, by foot just a great free outing in New Plymouth. Specially the amazing views along the way of Mt Egmont
