Starting at the Town Basin, cross over the river on the Victoria Canopy bridge then over Riverside Drive to the Aquatic Centre car park. The walkway follows the car park boundary alongside the Hātea River and continues along to a boardwalk through a mangrove swamp.
It turns left at Ewing Road then right down a narrow walkway to Vale Road. Turn left here again to rejoin the walkway. Mair Park is on the other side of the attractive stone footbridge.
