Do you love your local green spaces?



6 July 2020 

We want to hear from you! 

Rotorua Lakes Council is conducting a survey to help the organiation better understand what our community values about local parks and reserves.

The past couple of months has been a stressful time for many households in Rotorua, but it has also provided a unique opportunity for people to spend more time in their own neighbourhoods. COVID-19 Alert Levels meant people were using spaces close to home for recreation more than ever.

Reflecting back on that time, we want our community to share with us what they noticed about their local parks and reserves. Did you use them for exercise and leisure? Do you use them more now? What did you miss about having a local playground available?

Understanding how our community uses local parks and reserves, and what value people place on them, enables Council to effectively plan for future projects and work programmes.

We want to hear from you! Please take a few minutes to complete the survey and tell us what you value most about your local park or reserve.


Please share this with your friends, whānau and wider networks.

Get the tamariki involved and win!

We want to hear from young people too! Get your tamariki to create a picture of the park or reserve that they like to use, including what they like most about it, and send it in to Council for a chance to win a family pass for the Redwoods Treewalk.
