Our aim is to address current issues and enhance recreational opportunities in this much-loved space, by:

  • improving accessibility and connectivity
  • protecting and enhancing the site’s open space landscape character and surrounding bushland areas
  • improving the grassed spaces and park facilities
  • ensuring it continues to cater to diverse users and activities.

Your feedback will help us understand what's important to reserve users.

Proposed features by area

Background

This reserve is highly valued by many for its environmental, heritage, social and scenic qualities. It is dog friendly and caters to a diverse range of active and passive recreation activities such as picnicking, walking, informal sport / fitness, children's play and more.

Draft concept designs for the landscape improvements were developed in consultation with key internal and external stakeholders, with a set of recommendations provided by the North Harbour Community Group.

Improvement works will be prioritised and staged based on:

  • community feedback
  • available funding in future Capital Works Programs
  • grant opportunities
  • alignment with other related works.

North Harbour Reserve is a significant historical site and we have looked to recognise and celebrate its heritage through various aspects of the design.

This project refines remaining actions from the 2010 North Harbour Reserve Concept Plan, in accordance with objectives from the North Harbour Reserve Plan of Management.
