Shared Pathway Opens to Purewa's Beauty
Purewa has an impressive new neighbour: The 2.65km section 2 of the Glen Innes to Tamaki Drive shared pathway for cyclists, walkers, scooter riders and runners was officially opened last month. Known as Te Ara Ki Uta Ki Tai – the path of land and sea – the joint project of Auckland Transport and Waka Kotahi provides a total of 7.3km to connect Auckland’s eastern suburbs to the city centre. Purewa Cemetery is one of the many beautiful places along the path.
