PNCC, Palmy Rocks and Friends of Waitoetoe park invite the community to a family picnic and an opportunity to say what you would like to see developed in the park. There will be a sausage sizzle, as well as fruit and water, with maybe a surprise as well. The rock painting is for families to create some treasures to then hide, and to find other treasures for yourselves. There will be a nature treasure hunt and an list of neat things to do and see in the park. If you have a kite or want to kick a ball,, or even set up a game of rounders that can be arranged, but come and have your say on what you want to see as development of a true City asset.
