Esk Street Walkway. There is a 10 minute loop track through native bush at the back of Yatton Park. From the bottom of this loop, the Waimapu Walkway takes you along the foreshore of the Waimapu Estuary and gives extensive views across to Hairini. Approximately 10 minutes from Yatton Park, the Esk Street Walkway runs from the foreshore parallel to Esk Street taking you back to Fraser Street.
Yatton Park, a popular picnic and recreational spot for families is located on Fraser Street, and extends eastward to meet the harbour margin of the Waimpau Estuary.
