Kennaway Group

What we do

River and riparian zone care work which includes clearing box-thorn and gorse along the riparian zone of the river reserve and planting of Plagianthus spp.; Coprosma spp.

A walking and biking trail has been established from the very eastern end of Cumnor Terrace to the Woolston Cut and three seats have been installed at various viewing locations. Crusher dust has been placed on the trail where required.

This work is ongoing and is being supported by Christchurch City Council Parks Unit Arborist, Jonathan Hansen.
