Petone Foreshore to host Sport Wellington Buggy Walk

Petone Foreshore to host upcoming Sport Wellington Buggy Walk

Hundreds of buggies are set to stroll along Petone Foreshore on Thursday 5th June for Sport Wellington’s monthly Buggy Walk.

Buggy Walks are a free event occurring on the first Thursday of every month. The walks take place at a different location every month and aim to provide parents and caregivers the opportunity to discover some of the many buggy friendly walking tracks throughout the Wellington region.

This month’s walk will start at the Hikoikoi Reserve and is described as an easy walk, about 5km in length. The track will follow along the beach to the Petone Wharf and return back to the Hikoikoi Reserve. Playing host to local rowing and waterski clubs, the foreshore becomes a hive of activity on warmer Wellington days. It is a popular destination for walkers with sea views across to Wellington’s Harbour, Eastbourne and Somes Island as well as picnic and playground facilities.

Event Organiser, Tania Atkinson of Sport Wellington says the walks are growing in popularity each month with over 280 parents, caregivers and children in attendance at the May walk in Karori. “Our last walk was the biggest yet, with a mixture of familiar faces and first timers. It’s really great to see more and more people keen to come along and get active with their young ones” adds Atkinson.

The walks vary in length and difficulty but will usually take 45 – 60 minutes to complete. With no registration necessary, everyone is encouraged just to show up and take part. Participants can also take advantage of free Caffé L’affare coffee and a BBQ, courtesy of Southern Cross.

John McBeth: Our World Cup All Blacks

Forty or fifty years ago nobody really had any idea of what the selectors had in mind.
