Upgrading Tauranga Waterfront

It’s on. We have a number of projects underway to upgrade our waterfront and celebrate our special connection to Te Awanui Tauranga Harbour.

These upgrades will complement the new civic precinct - Te Manawataki o Te Papa and are expected to attract people from near and far - making it a destination that people are proud of and want to spend time in – a place that is uniquely Tauranga.

A safe, parkland setting will form a natural extension to the city centre, along with improved access to the water’s edge for people to take part in a range of water activities, a flexible event space that can be used all year round, plenty of spaces to play, and a boulevard along the water’s edge for walking and cycling.

The refreshed Waterfront Plan was formally adopted by Council in September 2022. $94.8 million has been allocated for the development of the city centre waterfront, with many projects earmarked for completion before the end of 2024.

Overarching vision for the waterfront

Our refreshed Waterfront Plan guides our development over the next 10 years to create one cohesive space with lots to enjoy. More detailed plans are developed as we progress, and you can find out more through the links to project pages.
