This map shows the local options for walking and biking.

The intention is that you can pick and mix the various options into your route planning and stay off roads as much as possible

Once in the map, scroll down in theleft hand menu to select a second layer with suggested walking loops and routes.

Dog Rules for parks and beaches

On the beach and in the water from north of the marker post located at the northern most access from Eric Armishaw Park onto the beach to the northern headland of Point Chevalier Beach:

Winter (1 April until Friday before Labour day weekend): 10am-4pm, under control on a leash

| 4pm-10am, under control off a leash.

Summer (Labour day weekend until 31 March): 5am to 9am, under control off a leash | 9am-7pm, prohibited | 7pm-9am, under control on a leash

Allow dogs under control off a leash east of the northern headland of Point Chevalier Beach.

Allow dogs under control on a leash on the open grass areas, boardwalks and walkways of Eric Armishaw Park and to prohibit dogs on the remainder of the park to protect wildlife.

Point Chevalier Beach is an area reserved for swimmers and non-mechanically powered vessels.

This means yachts, kayaks and other craft without motors are fine within the buoys off the beach, but jet skis and other motorised craft are not allowed. This information is contained in Auckland Council's Navigation Safety Bylaw 2014 and Controls. You can find the bylaw and map (2.1) that shows the designated Point Chevalier Beach area here

About us

The Point Chevalier Hub started as the work of local Cameron Greig who bought a house here in 2003, because he couldn't afford Westmere (!) - a fortuitous twist of fate.

Now with a family, we are embedded into this place, living on Newell St and owning the Rumpus Room Early Learning Centre on Moa Rd.

Jacqui looks after the Facebook and Instagram side of things. This is our way of giving back to the community we love.
