REMINDER: We’ll be at Sparks Park tomorrow morning carrying out mowing and maintenance works.

This will happen each Monday, between 7.30am and 9.30am, and the area will be temporarily closed over this period. All the details below ⬇️Some of our team were at Sparks Park this morning to let users know that we’re formalising our mowing and maintenance period for the popular space.

From 15 July, the park will be temporarily closed each Monday from 7.30am to 9.30am while works are carried out. This helps us to ensure the safety of park users, their pets and Council staff, as heavy machinery will be in operation.

Previously this work has occurred with no set time in place. By locking in a regular period, Sparks Park users will be able to plan their park visit without any interruption.
Signage will be in place while mowing and maintenance takes place.

More information about the temporary closure period is available on our website:

Soooooo much better now that that they have been changed back. Hallelujah!

So relieved that they’ve been changed back! The other way was really dangerous with cars not able to merge and not knowing what to do.

Give it a couple of months and they will change again

Pop Up Play session will be happening Monday 15 July 10.30am - 12.30pm in the foyer of the Carterton Events Centre.
