Reserves Management Plan

Council owns and maintains several reserves around the Waitaki District. Through our Reserves Management Plan, each is managed according to a management category based on a nationally-accepted parks classification system (the 2011 NZ Recreation Association Parks Categories and Levels of Service Guideline). The following management categories are used for Waitaki's reserves:

  • Public Gardens
  • Civic spaces
  • Neighbourhood reserves
  • Outdoor Adventure
  • Natural
  • Sport and recreation grounds
  • Cultural Heritage – Cultural heritage areas and Cemeteries

For more information on the locations of these reserves and their uses, please refer to our Reserves Management Plan.

To book one of our parks, gardens or reserves for a wedding or other event, please go to Parks, gardens and reserves bookings. Our parks, gardens and reserves are designated as smoke-free areas.
