There were positive comments about our recently improved playgrounds, while others complained about dated playgrounds that didn't cater for a wide range of age groups.

Managing unwanted behaviour and maintaining parks

We received a lot of comments about maintenance issues in parks, particularly litter, illegal rubbish dumping, graffiti and weed control.

The importance of the natural environment was reflected in many comments.

People appreciated a range of natural values, from bush areas to saltmarshes and tidal areas, and enjoyment of large shady trees and views of water.

Organised sports

Sports clubs pointed out the high demand for sports and issues with having enough fields to cope with demand at specific parks.

Reinstating Māori names for parks and features was also suggested.
