Fam­ily open day to view re­vamp at re­serve

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

A draft plan of im­prove­ments to be made to Cost­ley Re­serve in Free­mans Bay will be un­veiled at a fam­ily open day on Sun­day.

Many safety is­sues have been un­earthed at the re­serve in­clud­ing moss growth on play equip­ment and is­sues with light­ing be­cause of tree over­growth.

The Waitem­ata Lo­cal Board is aim­ing to im­prove the park’s safety and cre­ate stronger links be­tween it and neigh­bour­ing streets.

The fam­ily open day will give the com­mu­nity a chance to have their say on the plans and ex­plore the park.

A ‘‘mini-beast sa­fari’’, en­vi­ron­men­tal art work­shop and free face paint­ing will be avail­able on the day.

Board mem­bers and coun­cil staff will be able to an­swer ques­tions and col­lect peo­ple’s views.

It will be held at the re­serve from 2pm to 4pm.

Go to auck­land­coun­cil.govt.nz or phone 309 0101 for more in­for­ma­tion.
