What you can do
The volunteering spirit, willingness and generosity of numerous individuals, groups and sponsors within our community are at the heart of the TECT All Terrain Park’s success.
In 2004, some 1,269 hectares of land, largely comprising forestry and native bush in-between Tauranga and Rotorua, was purchased by Tauranga City Council and the Western Bay of Plenty District Council with the support of naming rights sponsor TECT (Tauranga Energy Consumer Trust). Bay Trust provided initial loan facilities to councils for the capital purchase of the proposed park. An additional 381 hectares of land was then purchased jointly by the councils in 2006, bringing the total area of land to 1,650 hectares.
Work is already underway to transform the 1,650 hectares of pine plantation and wilderness gullies into a giant adventure and outdoor playground called the TECT All Terrain Park.
Initial construction activities began in 2008, with stage one opening to the public following a ceremony in December last year. At the ceremony invited guests, representatives of Tauranga City and Western Bay District councils, the Tauranga Energy Consumer Trust (TECT), tangata whenua and the many user groups and individuals who had contributed to the park’s development conducted a mass ribbon cutting, which marked the official opening of the Arrival Centre. A discovery day followed with the park open to the wider public to explore all the park has to offer.
