Parks, Reserves & Sports Ground Fees

The Manawatū District provides parks, reserves and sports grounds for active and passive leisure pursuits. A range of properties makes up our parks, reserves and sports grounds. These include vacant rural land, large tracts of native forest or beach reserve as well as urban sections containing significant building assets.

Please note: an additional fee will be charged if paying by credit card or paywave. Manawatu District Council does not receive any part of this fee.
