This section of walkway from Ashhurst toward Palmerston North, winds along the edge of the Manawatu River to Raukawa Road is a shared path for pedestrians and cyclists. Pedestrians include those with physical limitations and is also extended to equestrian users. All users are asked to be courteous to each other’s needs, such as cyclists warning in advance that they are approaching a group of walkers. Although, as this section of path is constructed from Crushed Compacted Lime, cyclists will be heard as they approach pedestrians. As such, this pathway is to be called the ‘Manawatu River Shared Path
