The Patricia Fraser Memorial Trail project aims to create a safe off-road cycling and walking route for recreational users and commuters linking Ashhurst and the Manawatu Gorge from the city. 

The intention is to present a petition to the Palmerston North City Council to urge them to prioritise this project.

They need your support to make this proposal a reality
