When streets are dead-end for cars but are open for pedestrians as well as cyclists we label them living-end-streets.
The Kaipatike Area Walks booklet, the third volume in the Explore the Shore series of booklets, produced by Margaret Scrymgeour, is now available. This booklet describes walking routes, with detailed maps, in the Kaipatiki area of Auckland's North Shore. That's west of the Northern Motorway including Northcote, Birkenhead, Beach Haven and Glenfield. This is the final booklet in the series.
Congratulations to Margaret Scrymgeour, a member of Living Streets Aotearoa, for compiling into a handy booklet form a series of walking routes to help people explore the hidden walkways and small reserves throughout Auckland's North Shore. Margaret has been involved in walking activities on the North Shore for the past 30 years. The routes were "road tested" by Margaret with help from family and friends. Albany Newcomers Network, Rex Oddy and Albany CoCo Inc assisted with the publication of these booklets.
