What's On

Maclean Park refresh

We're preparing a plan for Maclean Park’s development. Working with community input we've received, we're now drafting a management plan and development options, and will be seeking feedback on these soon.

Check out the three draft concept plans for Maclean Park and let us know what you think by 25 May 2017.

We need to prepare a plan for Maclean Park's long-term development so it meets the needs of current and future users. We also need to update our existing management plan for the park. We need the community’s help to refresh this.

Kāpiti has grown up with Maclean Park, and we want to sustain and enhance its character and mana for future generations with forward thinking and great ideas to create a contemporary destination park the District can be proud of. 

There will be a range of opportunities for you to contribute your ideas for Maclean Park and the management plan throughout the project.
