Our District

Since November 2016 we’ve been working with our community to prepare a plan for Maclean Park's long-term development so that it can meet the needs of current and future users. This includes developing a new Management Plan to replace the existing one, including a draft development plan that outlines a framework for the long-term improvement of the park’s main attractions.

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 have been a range of opportunities for you to contribute your ideas for Maclean Park and the management plan throughout the project. Here’s some info on how we’ve engaged with the community about the Maclean Park refresh, and what stage we're currently in.
