Devonport to Takapuna on the Green Route

The journey includes paths, boardwalks and bridges weaving through parks, mangroves, and heritage streets. Along the way find a nautical-themed playground at Northboro Reserve, look for eels among the mangroves, and delve into North Shore’s history at its oldest cemetery founded in 1891.

There are short steep hills near either end of the ride. To avoid the busy Devonport shops, pass in front of New World Supermarket and walk up the ramped foot path to the top of Victoria Rd. Past Calliope Rd there is a bike lane on the footpath. At the Takapuna end riders may wish to enter the shopping area or head down to the beach. SEE MORE HERE.
