Path closure at Mangaiti Gully
A walking path through Hamilton’s Mangaiti Gully will be
closed from 25 February to 1 March to allow for the removal
of a group of willow trees.

accessed from Wairere Dr in Queenwood/Hukanui, is a popular
walking route for residents, but staff in Hamilton City
Council’s Parks and Recreation Unit have concerns the
trees will continue to crowd out native plantings also
lining the path.

The closure is from 8am to 4pm each day and is to ensure a
safe site for arborists carrying out the job.
