Ngaio Crofton Downs Residents Association is seeking input from the community to develop a vision for Cummings Park in the centre of Ngaio.
The first step is a workshop to be held in the Ngaio Town Hall between 2pm and 4pm on Saturday 31 October. The aim is to generate ideas and gauge community preferences about future possibilities for Cummings Park prior to preparing a draft vision.
Currently the park contains a playground, a dog exercise area, a picnic lawn and areas of regenerating native bush. The Korimako stream runs through the park, as does the national Te Araroa walkway.
We believe Cummings Park has the potential to meet the needs of our community by better providing for a range of informal recreation activities for all age groups.
A community vision would strengthen the ability of local residents to effectively engage in partnership with the Wellington City Council on issues relating to the park’s future.
Local residents Ralph Johns and Andrew Burns who work professionally in landscape architecture and urban design are facilitating the workshop. It will start with a short presentation at 2 pm which sets the context for the project. A series of facilitated general discussions will follow.
You are encouraged to stay from the beginning if you can, but otherwise we hope you will drop in and let us know your views about Cummings Park. If you are unable to come on the Saturday then please email us your views to: firstname.lastname@example.org
We welcome all those with an interest in developing community aspirations for the present and future of Cummings Park to attend.
