In the summer of 2014‐2015, Lincoln University, in conjunction with the Rod Donald Banks Peninsula Trust, undertook research to explore the use of the Banks Peninsula walkways among youth organisations. The aim of this investigation was to understand the demand for local outdoor recreation opportunities among youth groups in Christchurch, as well as to gauge the implications for the Banks Peninsula “Spine of the Lizard” project.
