Kulim Park in Ōtūmoetai is temporarily closed to vehicles on weekdays until December 17, while the finishing touches are added to the park upgrade before Christmas.

Tauranga City Council is carrying out an extensive upgrade to the park, including a new playground, parking layout and shared pathway.

Most of the construction will be completed by Christmas, including the new playground.

“With restrictions on the parking areas under construction, and a large number of heavy vehicles accessing the site, it has been decided for the safety of the public we need to close the main park to vehicles during the week until Friday, December 17,” says spaces and places director Paul Dunphy.

“Construction areas are safely fenced off so people will still be able to use parts of the park, but they will need to park their vehicles away from the area.”

The park will be open for vehicles on weekends, and the carpark at the Tauranga Yacht Club at the Kulim Avenue end of the park will be open for limited parking during the week.
