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.

More than just a bridge

12 Aug 2021, 2:26 PM

There’s not long to go now before our Te Ara Tika project comes to an end.
Once completed, Te Ara Tika – The pathway of our history – will be more than just a bridge, it will capture the important history of the town, people and landscape through the inclusion of weaving patterns and their stories.
The hope is that it will support an increased knowledge of the rich history of Te Kuiti, its people, landscape and its contributing area.
