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.

Water Supply

The Water Supply Activity provides for the safe collection, treatment and reticulation of potable water to the townships of Te Kuiti, Benneydale, Piopio and Mokau.

Water supply is essential for maintaining public health, provides fire fighting capacity in urban areas and facilitates economic growth.
