Feedback Sought on New Features for Millton Memorial Park

The Waimakariri District Council invite the community to share feedback on a draft Master Plan for Millton Memorial Park in Rangiora, as it looks to further develop the area north of the existing dog park.

Feedback opens today on a draft Plan featuring an arboretum, dog agility area and an area for the North Canterbury Model Railway Club to lease. A path network would link the reserve and dog park into the wider walking and cycling trails, especially those in the Ashley/Rakahuri Regional Park.

A toilet is also being proposed in year 2024/25 of Council’s Long Term Plan.

“The draft Plan gives an idea of what it could look like and the proposed location of the different features. We’re looking forward to getting feedback to see what people would like”, says Grant MacLeod, Council’s Greenspace Manager.

Millton Memorial Park is a reserve that currently includes the Rangiora Dog Park, Croquet and Table Bowls, Park & Ride and a large area of leased grazing land. The area for the proposed upgrade is the remaining undeveloped part of the reserve.

Feedback closes at 5pm, Friday 8 January 2021.  Following feedback, the Plan will be presented to the Rangiora-Ashley Community Board for consideration and final approval.
