Kieran Smith

Parks, Play & Open Spaces Programme Manager

Kieran is our Parks, Play & Open Spaces Programme Manager. With almost a decade of navigating the wild terrains of parks, play, and cemeteries, Kieran isn't just a programme guru — he's a community connector extraordinaire.

After managing green havens and playgrounds with the Taupō District Council over the past eight years, Kieran doesn't just talk the talk, he walks the mud-stained, grassy walk. His mission: to enhance the vibrancy of our communities by creating healthier, happier spaces.

But Kieran's not just about work. He's a superhero dad of three (a six-year-old and two four-year-olds), and a master-juggler of rugby refereeing, family fun, and championing sponsorship for King Country referees. And if that's not enough, he's also on a quest for knowledge, pursuing his Bachelor of Business Studies through Massey University Distance School.
