Opunake Walkway Project

Opunake Walkway Project

Thursday, November 22, 2012

About 50 people gathered at the cenotaph to enjoy a newly completed section of the Opunake Walkway. The walkway which includes the Dudley Morris Bridge has been resurfaced and fenced and some areas will be replanted next year. The project is a partnership between the Opunake Lions Club and the South Taranaki District Council though most of the physical work was done by the Opunake Lions, co-ordinated by Rex Langton.

Along this stretch of walkway there were 3 signs from the newly completed Heritage Walkway Series of 10 signs. There are also four master signs on the walkway showing where the heritage signs are located in relation to where you are currently in Opunake. These master signs are positioned at the Lake, Lions Lookout at the Northern Heads (pictured below), the entrance to the Cemetery and the Opunake LibraryPlus.
