Out and about in Waitematā

One of things I appreciate about walking and cycling around our Board area is seeing small but meaningful improvements take place. Many happen quite independently of the Board when residents decide to take action themselves.

menswear dogI have no idea who commissioned “Menswear Dog” by Paul Walsh on the electrical box on the corner of Williamson Ave and Great North Road but I think it looks great and has received lots of positive feedback on social media.

Grey Lynn toilets

A local resident alerted me to the fact there was no mirror in the women’s public toilets at the Grey Lynn shops.  After a request made through our Board office (thanks Alana!) the property team acted promptly to install the mirror and a new toilet seat on the disabled toilet.


new foot path Domain Auckland This path in the Domain has been in need for repair since I used to cycle through here daily to my job at Vector on Carlton Gore Road over 5 years ago.  It doesn’t look pretty but this resealing is long overdue and very much welcome by those who use this pleasant route through the Domain.

Walkway Beach Road to Anzac AveAuckland Transport has acted on my request to install a walkway sign for the pathway between Beach Road and ANZAC Ave. It would just be good if it stated where the path goes!



Fruit trees in Tole ReserveFruit trees Grey Lynn parkThese fruit trees (left ) have appeared in Tole Reserve. Hopefully whoever planted them is also giving the trees a good watering.

Our Parks Advisor, Mark Miller acted promptly to a request from a resident for the community fruit trees in Grey Lynn Park to be mulched.
