What does this mean for parks and playgrounds?

​The wellbeing of our community and our team ​are our number one priority. We are closely monitoring the advice from the Government and Ministry of Health and will be updating our website as new information becomes available. ​​​

​​Alert Level 1​

Will playgrounds reopen?
Community facilities in our parks are now open for bookings again, with no restriction on numbers.

All playgrounds are open, as are public toilets. Not all our toilets have soap dispensers as these are a frequent target for vandalism. We have signs up advising the public of this and suggesting they use their own hand sanitiser. Toilets are cleaned daily.

What about sports parks?
Most winter sports codes are already out training on Hamilton's sports fields with competition starting on Saturday 13 June.

We are working with Sport Waikato, regional sports organisations and clubs to ensure a coordinated approach to getting teams back onto our parks. Under Alert Level 1, there will be no physical distancing or contact tracing needed.​

Will non-fluoride taps around the city (e.g. Claudelands Park and Taitua Arboretum) be available?
The non-fluoride tap at Claudelands Park is operating but the one at Taitua Arboretum is still turned off due to maintenance requirements.
