Residents in the Henderson-Massey Local Board area will soon get a kick out of new recreational facilities.
The board is spending $120,000 on a multi-use futsal court alongside the Massey Leisure Centre at Westgate, which is due to open in June.
In addition, $25,000 is going towards the installation of outdoor gym equipment at Henderson Park by the end of April.
The futsal court, an artificial turf surface for five-aside football and other sports, will complement the leisure centre’s gym and indoor facilities.
The outdoor gym equipment was the idea of two community members and will include pull up bars, parallel bars and other body strengthening equipment for all ages.
“We are committed to providing opportunities and amenities that support the health and well-being of all our communities and look forward to the completion of these projects,” says local board chair Vanessa Neeson.
