Wai­tan­girua Com­mu­nity Park has been recog­nised with the Out­stand­ing Project Award at the 2013 New Zealand Recre­ation As­so­ci­a­tion (NZRA) Awards held in Novem­ber in Ro­torua. The com­mu­nity of Wai­tan­girua worked with the Coun­cil’s Vil­lage Plan­ning Pro­gramme and con­sul­tants from Co­ry­don Con­sul­tants and Tread­well As­so­ci­ates to turn a bar­ren, un­der­used car park into a thriv­ing com­mu­nity hub and play area. The park opened in De­cem­ber 2010 and has be­come a wellused, much-loved com­mu­nity space, fea­tur­ing ju­nior and se­nior ar­eas, sports courts, tness cir­cuits, a BBQ, a per­for­mance stage and pub­lic art. Thanks go to the com­mu­nity of Wai­tan­girua who were in­volved in the project from the early de­sign phase right through to con­struc­tion.
