Information about Council Reserves and Sportsgrounds and their location

Rolleston Reserve playground from the air

The Council has a smokefree policy and we request that people do not smoke in public outdoor areas, like playgrounds, parks and sports grounds, and at Council supported events. This policy is in place so that everyone can enjoy public spaces and public events in a smokefree environment and to provide good role modelling of smokefree behaviour to children.

Reserve Management Plans can be viewed under Key Documents.

If you would like to contact someone about a reserve or sportsground that is managed by a committee please follow the management link.
