Kaipātiki local parks management plan

Closed for feedback

About the Kaipātiki local parks management plan

​Kaipātiki has around 170 parks and open spaces, from bush-covered reserves to beaches, sports fields and playgrounds.

We are developing a Local Parks Management Plan for the area to reflect what you value about your parks, and how you use them.

The Kaipātiki Local Parks Management Plan will cover:

  • the private use of parkland
  • sea level rise and coastal erosion
  • protecting the natural environment
  • leasing and licensing parks
  • changing habits for sport and play
  • improving park quality to serve the needs of the whole community
  • improving opportunities for all ages and abilities
  • providing for the whole community
  • recognising different park uses.

Have your say on the Kaipātiki local parks management plan

We would like to hear your thoughts on what we should consider as we draft the plan.

We want to make sure the plan fits with what the community values in its local parks, and how people would like to use and enjoy parks in the future.

Throughout the process, we will be working closely with:

  • sports clubs and community groups
  • schools
  • volunteer groups
  • mana whenua.

You can read more about local parks management plans on the Local parks management plans page.
