Central Leader - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

Auck­land has re­ceived its first is­land re­gional park. An­nounced by the Auck­land City Coun­cil, Browns Bay will be the city’s new­est re­gional park. Friends of Re­gional Parks ap­plauded the Auck­land Coun­cil’s de­ci­sion, say­ing Browns Is­land will add to the re­gion’s chain of price­less parks along the coast. The new re­serve would open up a num­ber of recre­ational op­por­tu­ni­ties such as boat­ing, day walk­ing and camping. There will be op­por­tu­ni­ties for vol­un­teers to re­store the ecol­ogy of the is­land which was rav­aged by re­cent scrub and grass fires.
