On 1 July 2011, Recreational Services began working with Tauranga City after winning the contract to look after the city’s sports parks.
Tauranga is a growing and vibrant city with a population of over 111,000 people. The population of Tauranga has almost doubled in the last 20 years and by 2021 it is expected to reach 141,000.
The city covers an area of 13,440 hectares. The landscape is dominated by the volcanic cone of Mauao (Mount Maunganui), the harbour, long white beaches and the Kaimai mountain ranges to the west.
Tauranga extends from Bethlehem in the north where there are significant new developments, to the new growth areas of Pyes Pa in the west and east to Papamoa and the new developments planned for Wairakei.
Our team of six are responsible for the care and maintenance of the gardens, surrounds and sports fields in the Tauranga, Mount Manuganui and Papamoa areas.
With one of the best climates in the country and a beautiful coastline to match it is no surprise that this area is experiencing rapid growth. With this growth more pressure is put on sports field usage and Recreational Service will work with the Council to manage these challenges.
