All seven council-owned splashpads across Tāmaki Makaurau will be open over the summer, despite water restrictions in place due to the drought.
Meanwhile, locals will be pinged for using a hose without the correct nozzle.
The council says splashpads recycle a high percentage of water, and the centres themselves have made significant water savings in the last nine months.
Do you support council turning on splashpads in the drought?

I use public transport daily to commute to work. On an average, 25% commuters do not wear masks/coverings.
I spoke to some who don't, over past few days. Their casual response, "sorry I don't have one", "forgot"...
As far as I understand wearing of masks is mandatory on all public transport in Auckland, even at level 1. Exceptions do apply.
However with these excuses, what is the point in majority of commuters following rules, whilst a handful of them, just don't bother.
Is is alright to ask them or just leave them alone and change your seat?
Any other suggestions?
Is this complacency or irresponsible attitude- waiting for another outbreak in community?
