Visitors to Onehunga Bay Reserve will be happy to learn that most of the improvements which were supposed to take place in 2020 are now finally going ahead.   

While some timeframes have been pushed back further than first anticipated, particularly the installation of the proposed skate flow bowl (which is now looking to be completed by mid- 2025), work will start this year on other sections of the Reserve’s upgrade project – which includes a new larger vert ramp to replace the existing vert ramp, the replacement and relocation of exercise equipment, installation of a hard surface basketball half-court and a temporary pump track, which will be a modular construction that can be relocated once work on the skate flow bowl commences. 

 The relocation and upgrade of exercise equipment will be a highlight for many who frequent the space, which will replace the previous structures which had equipment set along the path. The new equipment will be designed to focus on promoting body resistance-based exercise, catering to all types of fitness levels. 

A hard surface basketball half-court will be a new addition to the reserve. It will be designed to official FIBA 3×3 court-size requirements, and will be able to host 3×3 games, as well as casual use. 

In addition, consultation on a proposed dog agility park should be ready by the end of February, and building will commence following final confirmation.  

The projects above are going out to tender, and once all is approved, start and completion dates will be finalised. Be sure to watch this space for more news.
