Waitawa Regional Park closed until further notice

Waitawa Regional Park closed until further notice


Significant slips caused by heavy rainfall have prompted Auckland Council to close Waitawa Regional Park (Clevedon-Kawakawa Bay Road) until further notice.

The park received 192mm of rain over 13 hours on Saturday 12 July, with 145mm of that in just seven hours.

The slips affect the hillside and road leading down to Mataitai Bay, the park’s main beach, picnic area and wharf.

A geotechnical assessment will be carried out this week and earthmoving contractors will begin removing slip debris. Due to the heavy machinery required to carry out this work, the park must remain closed. When the park reopens, there may still be some access restrictions in place.

Signs are being put up at the main gate.
