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.

Beach Access - Tokopapa Street Mokau

26 Jan 2017, 9:29 AM

The track that provides beach access to the Flower Pot at the road end of Tokopapa Street has slipped away. Due to the unstable nature of the bank and the potential safety risk to the public, WDC has temporarily closed this track until an appropriate solution can be found.  An assessment has been carried out on all the tracks and work will begin soon to tidy up the remaining tracks and install new signage.
