This consultation has now closed.

We’re reviewing our approaches to open space and recreation to ensure they work for Wellingtonians over the next 30 years.

The accessibility and quality of open spaces and recreation within our city play a vital role in how we think and feel about living in Wellington.

Our existing open space and recreation strategy - Our Capital Spaces sets out Council’s role in providing parks and other public places, recreation facilities and recreation services and programmes.

We need to review the strategy to ensure we have enough parks of the right sort in the right places as the city’s population grows and residential development intensifies. We also need to respond to changing leisure and recreation needs and expectations as our communities diversify.

Thank you for your participation

We received 1452 survey responses and learnt a lot of useful information about the way people experience our parks and facilities with many ideas for the future.

If you wish to review the survey report see the documents section on this page. For a summary of ideas and thoughts that help us understand what makes a great public space, please refer to page 46 in the report.
