Otatara-Dolbel Reserve Pathway Extension

This extension to the existing Maggie’s Way pathway will join two important sites in the hills behind Taradale, Otatara Pa and Dolbel Reserve.

Currently there are two sections of Te Ara o Matareta (Maggie’s Way), one at Otatara Pa, and the other off Kent Terrace, running between there and Tironui Drive, near Sugar Loaf Reserve.

The first piece of track, from the historic pa site, was opened in 2016. This new section of pathway will link the two existing sections, which are popular with walkers and runners.

Maggie’s Way is part of the Rotary Pathways Trust network in Taradale. It has been fully funded by the trust, through the generous bequest of Basil McCoward, and is named in honour of his late wife Margaret.

Rotary clubs will carry out further tree planting in the area once this project is completed.
