A natural amphitheatre is at the heart of designs for a park in Millwater.

Developing Metro Park West, also called Butler Stoney Park, will be a multi-year project for Hibiscus and Bays Local Board.

Board Chair Julia Parfitt says locals will be asked for feedback next month on designs showing how the park could be developed.

“The natural amphitheatre blends seamlessly into each design and the park will offer many different spaces for events, walking and picnics.

“Most importantly, because the terrain can become water-logged in wet weather, stormwater run-off will be provided for.

“We are keen to hear people’s views on which features they would like to see included in the final design plan.”

Wainui’s rolling hills and rural landscape have inspired the meadow and creek design while agriculture, timber milling and orchards are strong features of the industry and arbour design.

Design features and elements include play spaces, car parking, walking trails, event spaces, picnic spots and a toilet facility.

The consultation period runs from 3–30 September 2018.
