Ohakune river walkway funded
Mangawhero River: The walkways-cycleways being developed by Ohakune 2000 make views such as this accessible.

Enthusiastic local: Ricky McLeod appreciates the natural beauty of Ohakune and is happy to show visitors. Here he
enthusiastically points out the near-complete Jubilee walkway which will go from the Information Centre, across the
Mangateitei Stream, past the swimming pool to Rochford Park where the new St John Ambulance station is being built.

The Mangawhero River Walkway
committee of Ohakune 2000 is one
of the first organisations to receive
a grant from the Horizons Regional
Council new community grants
Committee spokesman Derek
Brown said they were really
delighted, and that the funds
would go a long way in helping
with the ongoing work on the
walkway-cycleway from the
Ohakune township along the
Mangawhero River to the base of
Mountain Rd at Ohakune Junc-
Mr Brown said there was a
plaque at each end of the walkway
honouring the Mountain Rd
This is in recognition of all the
hard work the pioneers have done.
Without the Mountain road, what
would Ohakune be?'' he said.
He said the track was on a coun-
cil paper road so access was not a
problem. Genesis, Department of
Conservation, Horizons and the
Gould Family Trust were the main
sponsors of Stage 1, plus a whole
lot of hardworking volunteers.
Stage, 2 which is nearing com-
pletion, is on land donated by the
Atihau Incorporation who, along
with the Department of Conser-
vation, are the major sponsors.
This walkway project is Mr
Brown's baby'', which is how
Ohakune 2000 works. Each project
is overseen by one of the
executives'' and there are many on
It's like a bus,'' past president
and facilitator Dave Scott said. If
you want to do something -- hop on.
When you are through you are free
to hop off.''
Mr Scott is working on extending
the Jubilee walkway through
Rockford Park to the Carrot and
back along the other side of the
Mangateitei to the information
He wants it to be wheelchair
friendly with rest areas along the
way. In future he would like to see
a sky walk'' among the mountain
beech trees. With Mr Scott's track
record on community projects this
will most probably happen.
In the meantime, Atihau Incor-
poration have donated a pocket of
land at the beginning of the
Ohakune Old Coach Road, which
Ohakune 2000 president Darren
Gambol was developing into a
pump track'' for cyclists.
At the instigation of Ohakune
2000 many projects have been com-
pleted, and others are ongoing.
Probably the most ambitious to
date has been the rebuilding of the
old coach road which Mr Scott said
took four years of hands-on work.
Eventually Ohakune 2000 and
the Department of Conservation
obtained a preservation order from
the New Zealand Historic Places
Trust and the Ohakune Old Coach
Road was reborn. It is now a sec-
tion of the national cycleway,
Mountain to the Sea, and hence
qualifies for government funds for
preservation and improvement.
We facilitate. We don't have any
marketing money, but we get
things done,'' Mr Scott said about
