Help design a new park in Ōrewa
Community Fun Day - 6 May 2023

Residents are being asked to help design a park that will be developed next year in Harvest Avenue, Ōrewa.

Hibiscus and Bays Local Board set land aside for the neighbourhood park nearly five years ago, and Chair Gary Brown says a survey last year about the amenities residents wanted received almost 150 replies.

“People got to choose their top three amenities, with a playground, picnic tables with seating, and shelter and shade leading the way.

“That information, and people’s feedback about current and future activities at the park, will shape the park’s design.”

Design options include three different layouts with activities for younger and older children, social areas with seating, an accessible trampoline and spin equipment, swings and open spaces.

Along with equipment options, feedback on planting and colour themes is being sought.

Brown says residents are invited to a community event at the park with fun activities for the kids, and where they can see the designs, ask questions and give feedback.

“We want to hear people’s views on the features they would like included, if we have got the design right, or whether there’s anything missing.”

Public feedback is open from 1-22 May.
