Community Facility

Construction of Puketoromiro Pa Walkway located in Kopurererua Valley has recently been completed and will soon be open for the public to enjoy.

Stellar Projects was engaged by Tauranga City Council to complete a design and carry out construction monitoring for this walkway which consists of approximately 120m of no-dig boxed steps, 70m of aggregate path and 10m of low boardwalk which cross over historic defensive ditches, accentuating the features of the Pa site.

This historic place was once inhabited by the people of Ngai Tamarawaho, and as an archaeological site, required sensitive design, with no digging allowed during construction. The resulting design made for expedient archaeological approval and Resource Consent application. The summit of the walkway offers great views over ecologically diverse wetlands.
