This is perhaps Whangarei’s best opportunity to create itself a truly remarkable central park that should be available for the wider public to enjoy. It must be safe and family friendly. Currently its development is disjointed and disorganised and needs proper management and some innovative input from the arts and cultural people from within our community.
It should be a playground of both natural and visual entertainment and encompass all that we stand for.
- We will be landscaping and planting this area with specimen trees to create a restful and safe central city park with increased parking, public access that will include at least one kiosk/cafe together with complimentary small businesses like bike hire. This project will be commenced immediately.
- Over time this area will develop into an area with activities, tranquillity and a connection with the city and the water that will evolve over time.
- We will not be proceeding with a car park next to an already busy intersection that is already creating problems.
