Great Lake Pathway rocks!
A popular area of the Great Lake Pathway is taking on a new look with some massive rocks taking centre stage.
These kohatu or rocks from Mount Tauhara have been placed at the entrance ways to the Waipāhihi C75 foreshore reservation, as part of a partnership with the trustees of Waipāhihi Marae.
Landscape architect Fraser Scott said the new additions were a huge undertaking – in more ways than one!
“The rocks were craned in this week and complement the new plantings. It took an effort to get them in, but it’s well worth it. It all looks fantastic,” he said.
“We are fortunate to have the use of the land. The Marae trustees and Tuwharetoa designer, Kingi Pitiroi have done some great work to recognise the people and places attached to these significant lands.”
