Outdoor recreation park

The Porirua Outdoor Recreation Park development plan covers a 550 hectare area on the western hills.

Development plan for the city

The Porirua Outdoor Recreation Park development plan covers a 550 hectare area which includes areas managed by Porirua City Council; Spicer Botanical Park, Te Rahui o Rangituhi (formerly known as Colonial Knob Parklands), and Porirua Scenic Reserve, plus Spicer Forest, which is jointly managed by Porirua City Council and Wellington City Council, and Colonial Knob Scenic Reserve which is managed by the Department of Conservation (DoC).

The Plan looks at track and entrance development, current and future recreation activities, landscape management and ways to reduce user conflict. It will guide the detailed planning for the facilities and tracks that will be built over the next five years.

An advisory group has been tasked with giving feedback on the development plan and programme for the park, and providing assistance with detailed trail and facility planning and design.
