TECT All Terrain Park voted one of the top ten parks in the world!
The winners have been announced for the world's favourite Green Flag Award® parks and one of the top ten is right here in Aotearoa!
Thousands of votes were cast by members of the public around the world and we’re extremely proud to announce that Bay of Plenty’s TECT All Terrain Park was voted in as one of the top ten international sites.
The People's Choice is voted on every year by members of the public. Parks rally votes via social media to encourage people to show their love for their local green spaces.
TECT Park Manager Bill Wheeler says, “Little TECT Park is hanging around in some pretty illustrious company. We are doing well to even feature on this kind of list and that’s all down to the support of the users from all over the Bay.
“This really was the people’s choice, they have supported us and shown how much they really appreciate the work that both Councils have put into providing the Park facilities by taking time to vote. They will continue to be far stricter judges than Green Flag will ever send but they are also our greatest ambassadors.”
Established in 2010, the TECT All Terrain Park provides a regional destination between Rotorua and Tauranga that caters for a wide range of adventure and education activities all while being managed sustainably. Low impact and energy efficient designs, materials and techniques are key priorities for the park strategy. There’s something for everyone to do at TECT.
