Turning vision into reality
Grenada North Park, Wellington, is a 15ha sports ground consisting of four poorly drained sport fields and two underutilised pavilion buildings. The park is situated on the edge of residential development approximately 800 metres from the Tawa interchange on State Highway One. The park also sits adjacent to a major green field sub division being developed over the next 20 years and is close to proposed major transport interchanges that will significantly change the connection of Grenada North with its surrounding suburbs. Therefore, Grenada North Park is in a prime strategic location particularly servicing the Northern suburbs of Wellington City and potentially adjoining territorial areas. Wellington City Council has identified and envisaged Grenada North Park as a major outdoor sports and recreation hub that will include new artificial sport pitches and will host a variety of active and passive activities.
Our role was to turn the Council’s vision into reality by preparing a robust concept design report that includes an overall master plan for this potential major sports and recreation hub. The master planning methodology focuses on testing particular development scenarios to help the Council better understand the implications prior to finalising a plan. This project included harnessing the skills and experience of recreation planning consultants, Strategic Leisure, to fully understand existing and potential recreational needs across the region.
