Scan­drett park

Time to take a walk

Real Estate Outlook - - Location -

Right on the doorstep of Wark­worth, Snells Beach and Al­gies Bay is the beau­ti­ful Scan­drett Re­gional Park. With the ar­rival of spring, it’s a great time to dust off the walk­ing boots and won­der through­out the park. At the cow­shed, you can pick up a brochure which out­lines the park’s var­i­ous walks. At the first car park there’s the short walk to Martins Bay with its sandy swim­ming beach, boat ramp, play­ground and pub­lic toi­lets. Drive a bit fur­ther to the main car park in front of Scan­drett Bay and learn the his­tory of the Scan­drett fam­ily-run farm be­fore it be­came a re­gional park. Then wan­der down the beach or the grave road to the old baches at the end of the bay. Th­ese are avail- able for hire from the Auck­land Re­gional Coun­cil. Con­tinue along the look­out track which even­tu­ally joins the Mul­let Point Track along the penin­su­lar – there’s a his­toric Maori pa site and panoramic views. The Mul­let Point Loop walk takes about an hour re­turn start­ing at the bay car park. The Scan­drett Bay Loop takes about 50 min­utes re­turn and walk­ers can join the track from ei­ther car park. To get to the park, fol­low the signs to Snells Beach from Wark­worth. Drive straight through Snells Beach and past Al­gies Bay to­ward Martins Bay. Turn left into Scan­drett Rd and fol­low the road to the end.
