Onehunga Bay Reserve gets an upgrade


It’s been a long wait, but finally work on path upgrades, seating  and the car park, at Onehunga Bay Reserve has started. This work involves the  upgrade of the existing eastern path between the car park and the toilets, as well as the western pathway between SH20 and Beachcroft Road. New seating, and the car park bollards will also be renewed, and the signage in the car park will also be replaced.  Auckland Council says work will finish in August.


Park users, especially dog walkers, have been getting increasingly frustrated with the flooding of the footpath on the western end of the reserve, often having to walk around the flooded area, through wet and boggy grassland. A new boardwalk will be built over the exisitng concrete path.

There will be some inconvenience to reserve users while construction is in progress. At the time of writing, only about one third of the car park was available for parking, and the path on the western side was blocked off.

The upgrade is one of the final parts of the Maungakiekie-Tamaki Local Board’s 2012 Onehunga Bay Concept Plan. Some of the projects were carried out as far back as the Taumanu Reserve development on the foreshore in 2014/15.
