Whanganui District Council is currently developing strategies to inform how we deliver our district’s parks, open spaces and sport facilities to ensure all residents have access to quality indoor and outdoor places to live healthy and active lifestyles. We would like to hear from you.
The Council manages more than 122 various types of parks and open spaces on behalf of our community, from neighbourhood parks such as Te Mana Park, to active parks like Peat Park to premier parks like Queen’s Park.
This strategy will consider how we manage our parks and open spaces and build on Whanganui’s sporting history and reputation. It will include our key points of difference like our rivers, lakes, Velodrome Track, stadiums and sporting green spaces, quality cricket wickets and Cooks Gardens as well as the Sports Hall of Fame and New Zealand Masters Games.
We believe if our district’s parks, open spaces and sport facilities are accessible and inclusive to all, more residents will be able to enjoy these community facilities and participate in physical activities leading to better health outcomes.
You can tell us what you think and be a part of the developing this strategy by completing the survey form below.

Engagement closes Friday 12 October 2018.
