Active Reserves Master Plan

As a growing city, we’re dedicated to improving the capacity and quality of the city-wide network of venues for sports, recreation, and events to benefit community wellbeing.

We’ve embarked upon a programme of work which considers multiple opportunities for community sport, recreation, events and high-performance training across Tauranga’s network of active reserves. As part of the process, we’ve developed the Active Reserves Master Plan to help guide short, medium and long-term investments by Council. Read more about the Active Reserves Master Plan below.

  • Humpty Dumpty! (He's 50 years old.) 
  • a skate ramp (half pipe) 
  • free barbeques 
  • memorial cenotaph 
  • Memorial Pools  
  • miniature railway and mini golf
  • Queen Elizabeth Youth Centre and Memorial Hall

There are two large fields that are often used for events: Jordan Field and Memorial Field.
