Bledisloe Park Walkway

Join the native birds as this path journeys through one of Palmerston North's native bush remnants. The pathway also links up with the Turitea Stream where babbling water, birdsong and fresh bush scent combine to create an oasis of calm.

Photo shows couple walking along stepped track through punga ferns and other native bush.


Take your togs because the stream and swimming hole are a perfect place for a swim too. If you're keen to get your heart rate up, there are three sets of stairs for you to run or walk up. The trail can be done in 30 minutes from Tennent Drive, but you can make it about two hours if you start at the Summerhill shops. This walkway connects to the Bledisloe Park-Old West Road Walkway.
