If you were building a new park the size of Auckland’s Cornwall Park, what would you put in it?
That’s the question Rodney Local Board is facing about a 154-hectare park proposed for Dairy Flat’s Green Road and it wants the answer from residents.
Whether it's picnics, sports grounds, horse riding, playgrounds or formal gardens, all ideas are welcome.
The park is in the heart of the Dairy Flat future urban zone and planning on the multi-year project to transform farmland into a park has started.
Board member and project lead Louise Johnston says this is chance for communities to help create a park and sports grounds that will be enjoyed by generations to come.
“It will be a great park one day, only slightly smaller than Cornwall Park. We know there are already many opinions and this is an amazing opportunity for communities to get involved and help create a lasting legacy.
“We are gathering everyone’s ideas for a masterplan that will guide development. People will have another chance to give feedback when the plan is circulated next year,” she says.
The consultation runs from 10 August until 21 September.
