Welcome Bay parks improvements

Welcome Bay parks improvements

We live in a wonderful part of New Zealand and in Welcome Bay there are many great parks and reserves enjoyed by the community.

Welcome Bay Ward

This ward is home to nearly 19.000 people and includes Welcome Bay, Maungatapu, Kaitemako, Hairini and Ohauiti. It is a popular place to live as it is close to the water with wonderful views out to the city. As this area doesn’t have a shopping centre or high school this community is reliant on travelling to services, including supermarkets and other community facilities, which are located in other suburbs. Over the years the main road to Welcome Bay has become increasingly congested so transportation to the city centre is an important issue for local residents. This ward also includes rural residents that have specific needs related to rural living. 

Visit Welcome Bay

There's so much to see and do in our beautiful backyard. Use the links below to find out more.
