Accessibility Report

Summary

Bronze

Waikowhai Park is a large bush land area with panoramic views across the Manukau Harbour and Mangere Mountain. A playground, barbecue area, picnic tables and accessible toilet facility are provided for families to enjoy, however accessibility is currently limited by wooden barriers between car park and playground/barbecue area. The playground is under development with limited play equipment available (climbing frame and slide). A firm slip resistant concrete path provides an accessible route to and from the car park please note terrain slopes in places. Faulkner's Bay and Waikowhai Park may be accessed by vehicle. Pedestrian access via steps with a handrail on alternating sides is available from Cape Horn Road to Waikowhai Park. Seats are provided at regular intervals throughout Waikowhai Park. The grassed bowl area which is surrounded by an accessible path is an area for dogs to be off the leash. The Waikowhai Walkway provides road and track paths along or above the coastline. Path surfaces may include boardwalks, concrete and gravel or sand (when following the coastline). Be aware of following the coastline path at low tide.
