Western Springs Lakeside Te Wai Ōrea Park Development Plan

Closed for feedback

Western Springs Lakeside Te Wai Ōrea Park Development Plan

The consultation closed on 27 August 2018. Thanks for your feedback.

We received more than 200 responses to the plan, via the online form, email, and at an open day at the park.

Most people were positive about the layout of Western Springs Lakeside, and the recreation opportunities the park offers. However, people felt that improvement could still be made to:

  • the park's ecological health and water quality (high priority)
  • the connectivity of the pathways around the park (medium priority)
  • the playground, the signage, and facilities like toilets and drinking fountains (medium priority)
  • provision for events in the park (low priority).

Playground renewal

We suggested two themes for the playground renewal as a part of the consultation: "Urban Park" or "Ecological Escape".

61 per cent of respondents preferred the "Ecological Escape" option, while 16 per cent preferred the "Urban Park" option. 23 per cent of respondents had no preference.

Local board meetings

The Waitematā Local Board will adopt the revised Western Springs Lakeside Te Wai Ōrea Park Development Plan at a business meeting on Tuesday 20 August 2019 at 2pm at the Waitematā Local Board office at 52 Swanson Street, Auckland Central. 

You are welcome to attend this meeting.

The full agenda, including a copy of the draft plan, will be available from 16 August on the Infocouncil website by selecting Waitematā Local Board meetings.

The final plan will include changes we made as a result of your feedback.
