Palmerston North and thinking about walking

Yes we do need to start the journey to a more walkable future, for our health, the planet, the economy and just because walking is fun and social. There are some really fantastic projects internationally that we could take bits from and adapt to what we want in New Zealand - its all about what we want after all. That vision is required from the top nudged along by us. Some of the first steps have already been taken with footpath maintenance funding now available and a revised Government Policy Statement on Transport. We need to see that turned into action on our streets.

Spring Clean the Steps

Join us for a Sunday afternoon spring cleaning the Grafton Road to Maida Vale Road steps, Roseneath - the longest stretch of steps in Wellington. These fabulous steps have become overgrown over winter and need a brush up to be ready for the spring and summer foot traffic down to the Balaena Bay beach. Bring your broom or weeder along and lend a hand with your neighbours - or just come along for a chat.
