Our District


#LoveMyPark event schedule | Summer selfie post locations

Now that summer is in full swing, we'll be providing different opportunities for our communities to get out and about enjoying our parks over the next couple of months. You'll see free play events for the kids, outdoor active sessions to get the heart pumping, outdoor yoga and tai chi sessions, and more. We'll be kicking off Parks Week 2019 with Park to Path fun run and walk at Otaraua Park on the 10th March 2019.

Check out Parks Week events - a week jammed full of events to showcase our parks and the opportunities within them.
