Feedback was invited on a draft master plan for Ross Watt Reserve in New Gisborne in June 2023.
This important area of passive and active open space offers grassed areas, a playground, public toilets, BMX humps and tennis facilities with four courts. Future upgrades identified include a new tennis pavilion, two new synthetic grass courts (to replace two courts that are at the end of their life) and a picnic shelter with a barbecue.
The master plan will provide a long-term road map for the future development and improvement of the reserve in a pre-planned, strategic manner, with individual projects being subject to funding and detailed design.

The draft master plan includes several directions for enhancing active and passive use of the reserve.
