Update on Havelock North reserves following Cyclone Gabrielle
Contractors are completing tree works in Palmbrook Reserve and Karituwhenua Stream Walkway in Kingsgate Reserve over the next couple of weeks. The grass paths in the higher sections of Palmbrook and Kingsgate reserves are open and Karituwhenua Stream Walkway will partially open in April, following completion of tree works. Tree removal in these reserves has been prioritised to ensure the stream is cleared as soon as possible.
The shared path in Hikanui Reserve has reopened, however the MTB track was damaged by a slip and remains closed.
We are working towards partially reopening Tainui and Tauroa reserves in April and ask that until this time people remain out of these reserves due to the large number of hazards remaining which could cause serious injury.
Keirunga Gardens and Tanner Reserve are open for walkers and dog walkers, as well as some walking and MTB tracks in Te Mata Park.
