Te Muri is a new park that extends Mahurangi West Regional Park. It is not officially open as it develops all the visitor facilities, but you can access from Mahurangi West and via kayak to the beach campsite. FORParks has this park firmly in it's sights for efforts to speed up developments that will enable full public access for all groups as soon as possible.
December 2020 Working Bee
We held a very successful working bee at Te Muri in December 2020. Installing new stiles (which can also be used as mounting blocks for horse riders), waymarkers and weeding.
Progress from first Te Muri Working Bee
FOR Parks volunteers spent a glorious day at Te Muri in December on our first working bee. We painted wayfinders for tracks through paddocks that take walkers to the high points in the interior of the park and disposed of a few weeds along the way. As part of improving these tracks, we built a prototype stile allowing people to negotiate fences without having to open farm gates. These stiles, designed by our Treasurer Ralph Lyon, sit lightly on the ground and do not disturb archaeological and geological features underneath. Observers report campers and other park visitors in January were already making good use of these new tracks. View new tracks here
