Motakiora/Brook Park top section closed until further notice
For health and safety reasons, Waitomo District Council has closed the top section of Motakiora/ Brook Park for ALL recreational use until further notice.
As a result of the weekend’s heavy rainfall event, a section of track to the summit is hazardous and a large slip has taken out part of the mountain bike track, which is also popular with walkers.
There is risk of further multiple slips and damage if the rain continues.
The rotunda and toilet is still accessible, however we urge residents and users to exercise caution if entering this area.
Signage advising of the closure will be erected onsite soon. Please do not venture into the red zone.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.

Community and Partnerships Fund

Waitomo District Council seeks to facilitate and support strong and sustainable partnerships and to seek co-funding arrangements to support improved social outcomes for our community.

The provision of grant funding is targeted to assist 'not for profit' community organisations that undertake projects and services which significantly benefit the residents of communities within the Waitomo District. It is recognised that overtime this will contribute to the creation of a strong social base and make Waitomo District a more attractive place to live and work.

The Community and Partnerships Fund aims to ensure that projects or services undertaken make a positive contribution to achieving WDC’s community outcomes and that contribute and support the Vibrant Safe Waitomo Strategy’s strategic themes.
