Tauranga City Council identified that there were areas in Gate Pa which didn't meet their level of service for open space for the community.
As a result the land on Cameron Road was purchased to create a new neighbourhood reserve.
The local community and tangata whenua defined their aspirations for the new neighbourhood reserve which included a basketball half court. Parklife in liaison with the Council provided the plans and Grizzly Basketball Hoop for the project. A solid group of players call this court their local and play here frequently.
