Our parks ARE open. Signs like these are confusing, but they are actually referring to specific assets with the parks not the parks themselves…
All vehicle gates in parks should be closed to stop vehicles entering, but you can still walk in. Some specific bush tracks have been closed where kauri are at risk, but all others are open.
All playgrounds are closed (and are not being cleaned).
Please do not use the drinking fountains, exercise equipment, BBQs, seats, picnic tables, basketball courts, etc. COVID-19 can be transmitted through touching surfaces.
Stay 2m from everyone at all times, both walking to/from and around the park.
