Rautawhiri Park to get new perimeter pathway

October 26, 2017

Work will begin next year to build a perimeter pathway around Helensville’s Rautawhiri Park.

Adjacent to Parkview Helensville, the park is a much-loved community amenity, with facilities including a dog exercise area, skate and scooter park, netball and tennis courts, athletics, and soccer and rugby fields.

Last year the project was identified as a priority in the Rodney Local Board’s Recreational Walkways and Bike Trials programme. “It will be a great amenity for the community and visitors alike,” says Brent Bailey, chair of the Parks & Reserve Committee of the Rodney Local Board.

Concept designs for the Rautawhiri Park perimeter walkway have been completed and community engagement is currently in progress with sports clubs, local residents, schools and Helensville community groups. The Lions Club of Helensville will contribute towards the purchase and installation of five to 10 fitness stations located around the walkway.

Construction of stages one and two is planned for late summer/autumn 2018 and will create a walkway circuit around the perimeter of the athletics field, providing links to the playground and toilet facilities.
