Shore Road Reserve sports field upgrade

Work on the first stage of the Shore Road Reserve and Thomas Bloodworth Park Masterplan is underway with the upgrade of the fields at Shore Road Reserve.  

These works will significantly improve drainage of the fields and create room for a third field to be installed at a later date. It follows consultation by the Orākei Local Board in 2013.

Works include:

  • Upgrading the sand-carpets on fields one and two.
  • Moving field two to align with field one, so it runs north to south.
  • Installing new  lights on field two and removing the old light poles.
  • Creating a platform for a new field to be installed in the future.
  • Relocate cricket nets if budget allows.

Contractors have been onsite since January 2015 with works scheduled to be finished in January 2016.

How this will affect park users?

  • There will be no access to Shore Road Reserve sports fields, which will be fenced off.
  • The carpark and the footpath that runs around the perimeter of the reserve will remain open.
  • Dog walkers will still be able to use Thomas Bloodworth Park and most of Shore Road Reserve East.
