About walking – Christina Houghton Wayfinding Waikumete: walking glen eden
A guided walk that navigates the urban environment of Glen Eden. Following the subtle signs that locate us while noticing the seasonal markers, this walk moves through Glen Eden towards Waikumete Stream. Wayfinding Waikumete investigates the lost name of Waikumete (waters of the kumete bowl) unveiling stories of the past, present and future. This walk is part of a series of walks that track the history of Waikumete.
This walk begins at the Glen Eden train station and moves through Glen Eden towards the Waikumete stream. This walk will be offered as a group experience at Alert Level 1 and 2 and as a self guided walk at Alert Level 3 or 4.
We will provide you with further details in the week before the walk. (Updates will be announced at aboutwalking.nz and on Te Uru’s social media pages.)
Wayfinding Waikumete is presented in partnership with the Auckland Heritage Festival 2020
