Been into LeRoys Bush recently?
Thanks to many volunteers from Northcote and Birkenhead, and Kaipatiki Local Board for funding of supplies, the tracks in LeRoys Bush have taken on a new lease of life and a new look. Much of the track is now boardwalk and stairways and to protect the kauri from kauri die-back disease there are shoewash stations at entry and exit points. Former NRA Chair Ray Marshall was an active volunteer for many years, but there have since been others, who have made this gem accessible to us all. We owe them a real debt of gratitude. If you haven’t been to LeRoys recently, do take the time to enjoy it. Access is from Dudding Park, Wernham Place, Valley Road and Hinemoa Street. The LeRoy Terrace access is currently closed.
