A free community event is being planned to celebrate the newly upgraded walking and biking paths through K Valley.

“There’s no better way to connect with your family and friends than to enjoy time together outdoors,” says a Tauranga City Council spokesperson. “Come to the free community event ‘Connecting in the Valley’ in Kopurererua Valley on Sunday December 1 from 10am – 12pm.”

The event, organised by Tauranga City Council is to celebrate the newly upgraded 6 km walking and biking path that was completed in May this year, and to encourage the community to have a go on all of the tracks in the award-winning Kopurererua Valley Reserve.

There will be plenty of activities to enjoy on the day.

“If you’re bringing your bike, be sure to decorate it as there will be prizes for the most creatively decorated bicycles.

“Explore the tracks in the area, bring your children for fun kids activities, try out the funky bikes and enjoy a barbecue-d sausage.”

Access to the event and Kopurererua Valley is in Gate Pa via the Faulkner Street entrance to the reserve. People are encouraged to walk or cycle to get there.

The fun free community event is on Sunday, December 1 from 10am – 12pm.
