SEATS ALONG THE NEW HATEA LOOP WALK

At the start of the walk while still at the Town Basin there is a bbq table with bbq.


one then comes to this lovely seat below which is outside the Reyburn House Gallery

then there is this pleasant place to sit and look at the river.


this is one of many with the top that can be altered so that one can either look at the river or inland.




These seats that look like seagulls have been there for a while

after crossing the new pedestrian bridge one is in the industrial part of whangarei and this is reflected in the industrial looking benches.






After crossing the new road bridge we come to some more of the seagull type seats and one of the ladies who accompanies her husband on the Parkinson walks is sitting (or reclining) on one.



 Then there are these lovely benches made and donated by the local "Men's Shed"



 then, when one comes to the road there is a bus stop.  This is where we rested on the Parkinson walk



Most of these seats are repeated at various stages of the walk.

  2. One thing you never see here are 'benches'. Maybe I should show someone your today's page.

    1. Perhaps you should knock some up and gift them.

  3. You are certainly well catered for in the seat department.
    It is so important to have places to sit, rest, and may be enjoy a picnic when you are out on a walk.

    1. Yes, when it finally stops raining and the sun shines for any length of time, it will be great to go down there for a picnic.

    1. Yes, those seats are lovely. The first lot have been there a while and some more appeared on the other side of the river last year and now a third lot.

    1. They are all great places to stop and take in the view. I am pleased to say that it is being well used. We had our third walk there this morning and go again tomorrow on an Alzheimer's Memory Walk.

  6. Quite the variety of seating along the way. Makes it nice to have a place to set and rest for a bit.
