Te Whau Pathway is the creation of a 13km shared pathway that will link the Manukau Harbour at Green Bay Beach to the Waitematā Harbour at Te Atatū Peninsula along the western edge of the Whau River.

The project will provide new opportunities for recreation, while protecting and enhancing the local environment. Safe walking and cycling connections will enable more people to get around our community other than by car. Boardwalk sections will bring new opportunities to experience the Whau River.

Construction of Te Whau Pathway began in April 2016. Completion of the entire pathway will take 5-8 years, dependent on funding.

Te Whau Pathway Project is a collaborative partnership between Auckland Council, the Whau and Henderson-Massey Local Boards, Auckland Transport, Te Kawerau a Maki, Ngāti Whātua Ōrākei and the Whau Coastal Walkway Environmental Trust.
