The walking route is also great for prams/buggies and dog walkers (on leash).
There is an off leash dog exercise area –along the Pakuranga Rotary Walkway between the Panmure Bridge and Waakaranga Reserve which permits dogs off-leash under the owners control.
This is a huge off leash walk but most people do not know about it. This sign can be found at the entrance to the walkway at Kerswill Place.
These flat river plains were used to grow oats, hay and wheat up until the 1950s. Pakuranga was then known as “the granary of Auckland”.
This walk section looks into the mouth of the Panmure Lagoon from the opposite bank.
Comments on Pakuranga Loop Walk
Notice to dog walkers. WARNING! On the weekend someone left huge blocks of chocolate along both sides of the rotary walkway just before the wooden bridge at the pakuranga plaza end. I do not know whether this was accidental or deliberate though it looked very suspicious and I’m not sure if my dog ingested any – I had to force her mouth open and drag huge chunks of chocolate out of her throat! There certainly must have been more than a king size block strewn up both sides of the path and it was the dark energy type. Certainly enough to kill even a large size dog!
