Living Streets Hamilton, Spring Strolls 2013

Posted 5 years, 8 months ago    0 comments

Living Streets Hamilton is looking forward to the fourth series of its annual Sunday afternoon Spring Strolls. These gentle outings, introducing Hamiltonians to parts of their city they are often unaware of, have been steadily gaining in popularity, with attendances topping a hundred for some walks last year.

This year’s set of four walks has been christened “Hamilton Hills and Hideaways” because every walk has a hill component (the steepest can however be bypassed if you need to!) and one or two incorporate sections that even the organisers were unaware of until they started planning the routes.

 All walks start at 2pm on Sunday afternoons, last between 60 and 90 minutes, and will be held on the following dates, two either side of Labour Weekend. All you need are sensible walking shoes, a coat, a drink bottle, and some sunscreen if we’re really lucky.
If you need more information, phone Judy on 8552019.
See the Environment Centre  website for links to maps for each walk.

Sunday October 13th: meet in Valley Tce, off Hammond St, to follow a path back to and through the Waikato Hospital grounds, down to Melville Park, across to Yendall Park and back along the river to Radnor St and thence back to the start.

Sunday October 20th: Meet in McDonald Rd on the corner of Resthills Rd in Glenview, to explore the Resthills Park and Houchens Rd area

Sunday November 3rd: Meet behind Hukanui School in Pickering Cres to wend your way to Hillary Park, Porritt Stadium, then home via the shared path on Wairere Drive and through the gully behind Hukanui School

Sunday November 10th: Meet in Merlot Place, off Coleraine Drive. The walk will incorporate a gully restoration project between Grenache Place and Sexton Rd, and some lovely views from the top of Somerton Drive before returning through quiet back streets, taking in Rototuna Park on the way.
