Plan for the new Town Basin park

The public is now invited to put forward naming ideas for the park, along with explanations of the reasons behind the suggestions, and how they reflect the significance of the area.

Representatives from the Tangata Whenua of the area, and members of the project team will consider all the proposals and create a shortlist of five suitable names, along with explanations of their relevance. 

A final name will be selected by Whangarei Mayor Sheryl Mai and all Councillors, who will each rank each name according to preference.
