We are working with Puketāpapa Local Board on an updated plan for the future of Keith Hay Park in Mount Roskill.
This 10-year plan builds on the existing Keith Hay Concept Plan 2012 and work undertaken to improve the park since then.
The refreshed plan proposes actions for future investigation, design, and delivery to improve the public's experience within this important park.
Actions to improve the park include:
- improving path connections to Three Kings United Clubrooms and investigating the future use of former Three Kings United club rooms for community / sport activations
- renewing the existing playground
- upgrading the toilet block
- naturalising Te Auaunga (Oakley Creek) as part of wider stormwater upgrades and including pedestrian bridge connections
- enhancing Te Auaunga (Oakley Creek) with plants along the riverbank
- a proposed art installation at the future Watercare plant room.
Actions to improve the sports field include:
- improving the surface of the northern sports fields
- looking into irrigating the northern sports fields using recycled water from the club building
- moving lights closer to realigned sports fields and upgrading them where required
- installing paths around the perimeter of the northern sports fields, including connections to existing walkways and park facilities
- improving the surface of the southern sports fields
- providing field number signs
- investigating water recycling to enable irrigation of sports fields using existing tanks
- installing shelter over one of the existing batting cages for cricket
