Oceandowns whenua rāhui

Oceandowns Reserve

Oceandowns Reserve has been developed into an active sports field with two football fields complete with irrigation, training lights and playground facilities.

Address: 128 Gloucester Road, Mount Maunganui

Key features of the reserve include:

Oceandowns Reserve

  • Two football fields
  • Floodlights
  • Public toilets, changing sheds, referees room, storage space – located in the most accessible and visible part of the reserve, near the playground and car park. The public toilets are locked afterhours, and only sports clubs have access to the changing rooms.
  • Car parking – 35 angle car parks on Gloucester Road.
  • Footpath – a new footpath along Gloucester Road.
  • Playground


The decision to convert Oceandowns Reserve into a sports field was driven by the growing pressures on the city’s active reserves. By establishing this park primarily for football use, it alleviates some of the pressure at other sports fields for other sports codes e.g. Arataki Park and Blake Park. 

Engagement with the community commenced mid-2018. Local residents had an opportunity to provide feedback on the concept plan, including providing suggestions on the type of play equipment they would like to see. Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the development. The responses received were generally in favour of the proposal. Any concerns raised have been mitigated where possible during the planning process.
