Motakiora/Brook Park top section closed until further notice

1 Feb 2023, 3:23 PM

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.

Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
