The Hastings District Council has over 150 reserves and areas of open space that it owns or manages within the District (See Reserve Maps). These areas of open space are generally classified under the Reserves Act.
Earlier this year, Council purchased the vacant site bounded by St Aubyn Street, King Street and Avenue Road from the Hastings RSA.
We are now in the process of planning the development of the site which will feature park like grounds, a children's playground and a skate plaza designed to provide additional recreation opportunities for young people.
