Spicer For­est open af­ter two-year spell

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

Spicer For­est has re­opened for walk­ing and cy­cling.

The main en­trances are ei­ther via Ran­gi­tuhi (Porirua), the end of Ohariu Val­ley Rd, or via Chas­tudon Place (Tawa).

Peo­ple may use the Te Araroa Trail and the road through the park, which en­ters and ex­its from Ohariu Val­ley Rd and Chas­tudon Place in Tawa.

The recre­ational area has been closed for two years be­cause Merid­ian En­ergy was us­ing it as ac­cess for the devel­op­ment of Mill Creek Wind Farm.

Tracks are marked with tem­po­rary signs and way-find­ing.

Welling­ton and Porirua City coun­cils are work­ing to turn the for­est into a unique recre­ational area that will in­clude track ac­cess from Tawa, and con­nec­tions to Porirua and to the wider Outer Green Belt area.

There will be an op­por­tu­nity for public in­put into this longer term plan­ning.
