The beautiful Rotorua lakefront needs redevelopment and revitalisation and Evolve Rotorua is pleased that the local Council has been able to secure significant investment in this project from central government via a $20 million grant from the Provincial Growth Fund.

This much-needed makeover for the lakefront will ensure that the space is designed to address the needs of our local community and our visiting tourists, by including a boardwalk and playground, with community spaces and cafe/restaurant areas.

The concerns of local residents are being met through the provision of car parking, and the entire renovation project has been through many years of public consultation with wide community support.

Revitalising our lakefront is a vital part of ensuring that Rotorua and its facilities are ready to address the needs of our future community members and visitors: maintaining our stellar reputation (and our economic success) as a tourist town, and ensuring that our locals have attractive safe spaces to play and relax which enable them to enjoy our beautiful lake.

Evolve Rotorua is excited to see the newest information released by Council about the plans for the Lakefront development (see Ideas from tamariki come to life in playground designs), and looks forward to construction commencing soon!  View What’s Proposed.
