Wi Parata reopens
Wi Parata Reserve reopened earlier this week, following on from safety improvements to avoid the danger of falling Astelia from the trees.
Wi Parata Reserve has been closed since February after concerns were raised about Astelia falling on tracks and posing a danger to track users.
Parks and Recreation Manager Alison Law says it’s great to have the improved tracks up and running.
“We’ve made minor modifications to plants in the reserve, and we’ve created an alternative track to avoid Astelia removal where possible. It’s a popular reserve and locals are pleased that it’s open for business.”
