When biking or walking the Manawatu River Pathway, take the chance to pop into the Victoria Esplanade which runs alongside the middle section of the Manawatu River Pathway. With rose gardens, bird aviaries, BBQ facilities, playgrounds, miniature train rides and duck ponds, there really is something for everyone. Public toilets are also available here. For a relaxing break, visit the Cafe Esplanade for a fantastic selection of cabinet food and menu food all made fresh at the cafe. Grab an ice cream or refuel with an organic coffee.
