“There were many aspects of the project. Firstly we wanted to understand what the community aspirations were and build the track to align with that,” Dave says. “We also took into consideration the natural environment; we wanted to make sure that our impact is minimal.” Once a dump, the bush reserve is now home to native plants like

“Wellington is blessed for what it has; it’s truly beautiful,” Peter Gilberd, Northern ward councillor, says last Friday as the northern community celebrates the opening of its newest track called Te Ara Papararangi. Newlands and Paparangi schools, the local iwi Taranaki Whanui, members from the Newlands marae Nga Hau e Wha o Papararangi, Wellington City Council, police, local business group Cigna and many more supporters and helpers attended the opening of Te Ara Papararangi on Friday afternoon. “It’s a great day for our community,” Peter, who holds the natural environment portfolio, says. “The new track is a great asset not only for Newlands but the entire area. Everyone has put a great effort into this project, especially over rainy winter. Now we get to enjoy these utterly superb views,” he adds. The track’s northern end starts from Waihinahina Park in Newlands and leads right through the tranquility of the regenerating and old growth native forest in Gilberd Bush Reserve, and offers stunning views over Wellington’s harbour. It ends near the carpark at Tamworth Crescent in the south. Te Ara Papararangi project manager Dave Halliday explains that building the new track was time-intensive.
