The proposed vision for our district is to have high quality, financially sustainable and highly utilised facilities that can accommodate the needs of Whanganui residents now and into the future.  

The goals for the proposed Strategy are that:

  • Whanganui's sporting facilities will accommodate and attract an increasing number of local and regional events
  • Council's investment decisions will be prudent, sustainable and based on the needs of the Whanganui District
  • Facilities will be increasingly centralised around suitable hubs
  • Sport and recreation facilities will be designed, maintained and utilised in a manner that enables and encourages all residents to participate in sport and recreational activities.
