Auckland Council’s May newsletter reports that the $2.3 million Rautawhiri Park upgrade, consisting of tennis courts, netball courts and a 2km perimeter path, is expected to be completed by mid-June.
The upgrade includes new surfaces for the eight courts, better drainage, new nets, hoops, fences, lights and a practice wall. The equipment is designed for all ages, abilities and fitness levels. The path will link the park’s facilities and provide a walking and exercising circuit. The Helensville Lions Club is donating five fitness stations for the path.
Rodney Local Board Parks and Recreation Committee Chair Brent Bailey says the multimillion-dollar project has received funding from development contributions.
