Te Kori Scott Point

Project overview

Over the next few years, around 20,000 new residents are expected to call Scott Point, and neighbouring Hobsonville, their home.

We are building a new public park to meet the needs of this growing community.

Te Kori Scott Point (formerly Scott Point Sustainable Sports Park) will be at the heart of the new Scott Point development. It will be New Zealand’s first fully sustainable sports park.

This 16.4 hectare park will be made up of three main areas, each designed for:

  • sports and active recreation
  • informal recreation
  • ecological restoration and conservation.

It was designed in partnership with local iwi to provide benefit to current and future generations, as well as the environment.

This will be the first fully sustainable park in New Zealand.  

A number of decisions have been made with sustainability in mind.

For example, rainwater will be captured from the sports fields and car parks, before being cleaned and used on the turf and gardens. 

Award-winning design

Te Kori Scott Point has already received a 'Leading design rating' award from the Infrastructure Sustainability Council (ISC).

Elements of design, development, management and governance applied on this project will be applied to parks across Tāmaki Makaurau as we strive to improve sustainability.
