Tūparikino Active Community Hub
The Tūparikino Active Community Hub at the New Plymouth Racecourse site will be a catalyst to boost activity and wellbeing and equitable access to sport and recreation across Taranaki.
Combining ambitious moves transforming traditional ways sport and recreation are governed and delivered in the region with top quality facilities, and efficient, collaborative operating models the Tūparikino Active Community Hub at the New Plymouth Racecourse site will be a catalyst to boost activity and wellbeing and equitable access to sport and recreation across Taranaki.
Co-designed with Ngāti Te Whiti and Ngāti Tūparikino hapū, together with the support of Te Kotahitanga o Te Atiawa, the Hub signals more than a quality community facility.It will be a site of learning and health, celebrating mana whenua identity and links to the whenua.
Taranaki Different & Better
Sport Taranaki is working with the sport and recreation sector on the Taranaki Different and Better project which is working to transform traditional ways sport and recreation is governed and delivered in Taranaki to tackle longstanding issues and provide better quality experiences for participants.
The new ways of working will lay the foundations for a collaborative, participant-centred sector that fosters wide community participation. The hub will provide quality, consolidated facilities with design and programming flexibility.
Both projects will develop financially sustainable models for future sport and recreation and together they will achieve an integrated people, funding and facilities solution.
