We're currently seeking input from our community on the Maclean Park plan refresh.
We need to prepare a plan for Maclean Park's long-term development so it meets the needs of current and future users. We also need to update our existing management plan for the park. We need the community’s help to refresh this.
Kāpiti has grown up with Maclean Park, and we want to sustain and enhance its character and mana for future generations with forward thinking and great ideas to create a contemporary destination park the District can be proud of.
There will be a range of opportunities for you to contribute your ideas for Maclean Park and the management plan throughout the project.

Our first phase on community input is now complete. During this time we ran an online questionnaire, an event at the park - The Maclean Park Experience - plus interviews and meetings. Feedback during this time helps us understand who uses Maclean Park and what they enjoy and appreciate about it, as well as gathering ideas for the future of the park. Working with this community input, we're now drafting a management plan and development options, which we will invite feedback on soon.
Digital copies of the existing management plan for Maclean Park are available, or you can view a printed copy at the Paraparaumu Library or Customer Service Centre.
