An exciting vision
The Western Springs precinct is home to some of the best-loved attractions and facilities in Tāmaki Makaurau Auckland, including MOTAT and Auckland Zoo.
With facilities such as Western Springs Stadium, sports clubs, Western Springs Park, TAPAC and schools, it is a vibrant community hub that welcomes thousands of residents and visitors weekly.
An exciting vision for the area is for it to be a cohesive precinct offering inter-generational learning, cultural knowledge, sustainability, conservation, inspiration, education, exercise, science, technology and good environmental outcomes, with clear wayfinding, easy walking and cycling connections – and safe, reliable parking.
Creating safe, reliable access
Regular visitors to the area will know that finding parking when visiting MOTAT, Auckland Zoo or any of the other facilities in the precinct can be challenging.
Tātaki Auckland Unlimited (Auckland Zoo and Western Springs Stadium), MOTAT and other Western Springs stakeholders are taking an integrated approach to the challenge.
MOTAT has completed the construction of a car park at its Motions Road site (MOTAT Aviation Hall), with support from Tātaki Auckland Unlimited, Auckland Council, Auckland Transport and the Waitematā Local Board. We are working together to improve wayfinding, accessibility and safety across the Western Springs precinct.
