Wairarapa Library Service StoryWalk®
Located in Martinborough, the StoryWalk® starts at the top of Considine Park (on the corner of Kitchener and Princess Streets) and winds through to the Vintner Lane exit.
It's a fabulous way to enjoy a children's story while walking, hopping, skipping or jumping along the path. The walk takes 15-20 mins and is the perfect addition to a family picnic or children's birthday celebration.
The stories change throughout the year, so this is an activity to return to.
Perfect for ages 3-8 and the young at heart.
Take a pic, tag us with #wlsstorywalk and go in the draw to win spot prizes.
Free and available at any time with no bookings required.
The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. StoryWalk® is a registered service trademark owned by MS. Ferguson.
