Home Street Reserve Upgrade

Dee Sims from Waitematā Local Board

Home Reserve Playground on the corner of Home Street and King Street in Grey Lynn will be temporarily closed from 1st October 2020 to mid December 2020 while upgrade works are being undertaken.

Waitematā Local Board is proud to be delivering the Home Reserve Upgrade Project. During this time, we encourage you to visit nearby playgrounds, including: Grey Lynn Park, Nixon Park and Western Park.

From the week beginning 28th September 2020, there will be no access into the park from either Home Street or King Street entrances, whilst the works are underway.

The construction works are scheduled to commence Thursday 1st October 2020 and are expected to be complete by mid December 2020 or earlier if practical. The contractor engaged to undertake the works on behalf of Auckland Council is Ventia.

The works will include removal of the existing playground, earthworks, installation of furniture, playground edging and surface, pathway renewal and half court line marking. The existing overgrown vegetation will be replaced with a mix of low growing native species designed to attract birds and insects.

During the works, the contractors will be using digging equipment and transporting material into the Reserve from Home Street entrance. There may be some noise during working hours (7.30am – 5pm, Monday – Friday), but the contractors will aim to keep this to a minimum.

We apologise for the inconvenience this may cause and will make all effort to minimise disruption.

If you have any questions about these planned works, please contact waitematalocalboard@aucklandcouncil.govt.nz

We won't know the outcome of the special votes until the official results are released on November 6.

How will you be celebrating Guy Fawkes this year?

Kendall Hutt Reporter from Central Leader

Hi neighbours. Guy Fawkes will again be celebrated with events and public displays in Auckland this year, despite ongoing controversy over the use of fireworks. There's fireworks at Western Springs and Waikaraka speedway, a summer concert with fireworks in Orewa and a combined Halloween and fireworks event out West. Will you be celebrating Guy Fawkes at one of these public events or setting off fireworks at home?
