Walking and cycling connections
Our Parks & Open Spaces Strategy 2021-51 identified additional walking and cycling connections to make it easier to get around our towns. This will be done using a combination of 'linkage parks' (parks/reserves that provide open spaces, but also a pathway or link from one place to another) and through shared paths.
We have acquired additional linkage parks in new subdivisions in Matamata and Morrinsville and will continue to do this more as subdivisions continue. There will also be some wider footpaths to provide shared path connections.
