Located to the south and just beyond the Palmerston North urban area, The Mews Apartments are just over 3km from the city centre. The city central area can be easily accessed by car, bicycle, feet or bus, by travelling straight down Fitzherbert Avenue where a full range of retail, business and cultural facilities are available. Palmerston North and Massey University are well endowed with sporting and recreational facilities.
An alternate (and shorter) route for walking and/or cycling between The Mews and the city centre is available via the He Ara Kotahi bridge over the Manawatu River. This is accessed via Batchelar Road and Dairy Farm Road as shown on the attached map. On the city side of the river travel along Ruha St, Park Rd and Fitzherbert Ave to the city square.
He Ara Kotahi is an integral part of the city walking and cycling network – see attached links for further information.
