Timeline PhotosHAVE YOUR SAY! Putāruru Waterpark Engagement

South Waikato District Council, Pride in Putāruru (PiP) and Putāruru Moving Forward (PMF) have been working together for the past two years to develop a new design for the Waterpark. The Waterpark is at the centre of a prime area of our town, located at the crossroads of a major visitor through-route.

In the 2018 Putāruru Concept Plan, we set out to develop this area into a visitor precinct – encouraging travellers to stop and experience some of our boutique businesses with a focus on artisan food.

Engagement period: Monday 14 September to Wednesday 23 September 2020, 4pm. Everyone is welcome to provide feedback or attend one of three sessions.

PUBLIC SESSIONS at The Plaza, Kensington St, Putāruru.
Monday 14 September 7pm-9pm
Wednesday 16 September 10am and 2pm
