Grass growth in Kāpiti

You may have noticed how fast some of our green areas are growing. Because we've been having rain and warm temperatures, it provides the ideal environment for grass and plant growth. Our team is working hard to keep the growth under control but you may notice in some areas it is overgrown, same goes for our popular walking tracks. We're getting there and work to tidy them up is ongoing.

From quiet relaxation to energetic activity there's something for everyone.  You can choose from the hills, coast, forests, waterways or local urban parks to meet your skills and interests.

Parks are part of the community and are free for everyone to use.

The splash pad at Marine Gardens Raumati Beach is open now for summer 2016.
