Great spaces and places | He tūhoropaki me ngā tūwāhi tino pai
All Aucklanders have the right to fit-for-purpose sport, play and active recreation environments. Our work with Active Citizens Worldwide proves that, globally, there is a clear correlation between spaces and places and physical activity levels.
We also know that good planning, good design and appropriate funding are key to easy-to-access, well utilised and future-proofed facilities.
Bringing these aspects together, Aktive works with our community delivery partners to make great spaces and places a priority in Tāmaki Makaurau. Through these partnerships, we are focused on maximising resources, boosting the use of spaces and places, and helping deliver projects.
Sport and Recreation Facilities Investment Fund now open
This contestable fund supports the development of sport and recreation facilities that create opportunities for Aucklanders to get active.
The fund recognises the important role that non-council facilities play in serving Auckland's sport and recreation sector.
Find out more and apply via Auckland Council's website.
If you intend to make a submission for funding, watch our Information Webinar facilitated by Aktive's Spaces and Places Manager, Simon Tattersfield, and Auckland Council’s Team Leader, Sport & Recreation Nick Harris.
Aktive also encourages organisations to contact local specialists where appropriate so they can help with new and existing facility projects.
