Sunnynook Park stormwater upgrade

Auckland Council will create more flood storage in Sunnynook Park due to identified flood risks.

The sports field surface will also be upgraded to sand carpet fields to increase sports field availability especially in winter.

This project also aims to:

  • improve drainage
  • widen shared cycleway and pedestrian access
  • upgrade the debris screen at the stream
  • improve the flood wall on Sycamore Drive.

Timeframe and area access

Works will start in October 2017 and it is anticipated site works will be completed by March 2019. Noise and vibration will be kept within regulations.

There may be some traffic delays but will be minimised. Access along Sunnynook Road and around the community centre will be limited. There will still be access through the park.

The northern portion of the main car park will be temporarily closed off for use by construction personnel. Use of the sports fields will be limited until the sand carpet surface is finished.
