Pohe Island is approximately 54 hectares in size and lies adjacent to the mouth of the Hatea River and the harbour. It is unique in that it is a relatively large coastal open space located within close proximity to central Whangarei. 

Future use and development of Pohe Island for recreation is constrained by past landfill operations. Recreation activities and uses currently on the site include a public skate park, BMX tracks, sports fields and waterbased facilities (e.g. rowing clubrooms, ramp).

With the opening of Te Matau ā Pohe across Hatea River and the development of the Loop Walkway, this area and surrounds will become more accessible for cars, pedestrians and cyclists.

The management plan for William Fraser Memorial Park on Pohe Island was reviewed in 2013 and the revised version was adopted by Council in September.
