In an anti-clockwise route follow the Centennial Park walkway through to the end (~2.5km), and then come back along the MTB tracks. At the BMX track veer right and follow the walkway all the down to the beach (~4km). Follow the beach walkways north right out to the end of South Point, which is the end of the rock wall protecting the wharf. Back track along the rock wall, round the log yard through the Port, and onto the beautiful Caroline Bay.
Head up onto the Benvenue Cliffs at the end of Caroline Bay, across the rail bridge and down into Ashbury Park. Head for the Briscoes on the far side, up Grasmere St, Park Lane and right onto Wai-iti Rd. After 300m you will see Westend Park, head through there and up Maltby Ave and you will find yourself back at Centennial Park. Keep your dog on a lead through Caroline Bay.
