The Active Recreation and Sport Strategy was developed by Whangarei District Council, Sport New Zealand and Sport Northland, working in partnership and talking with the community. It looks at the things we do for fitness, fun or social connection - to participate or to get our heart rates up.
From biking, bowling, fishing and paddling through to our many formal sporting codes, our people love getting out and being active. The aim of this strategy is to increase participation, improve the quality of the experience or the participant, and improve the economic, social and environmental sustainability of the facility network. We have included recommendations that are comprehensive, apply across the district and across codes and facility types. You can read the strategy here:
