February fun with The Gas Hub’s Parks and Places in Upper Hutt

Enjoy your summer with free, family events in Upper Hutt parks.

Upper Hutt is celebrating summer with free, family events run by Upper Hutt City Council’s Activation team, and sponsored by The Gas Hub. Make one of our beautiful parks your backyard for the day, gather the family and check out the hottest happenings in Upper Hutt.

Family Water Day, Wednesday, 6 February, 11.00 am — 1.00 pm, Harcourt Park.

The team at Activation welcomes families to join them for a fun water day at Harcourt Park. Bring a smile, pack a picnic, get the togs on, and slip, slop, slap. Activation, along with Wave Breakers Swim School will be on hand to provide water activities including the famous big slide.

Mitre 10 MEGA buggy walk, Thursday, 7 February, 10.00 am, Harcourt Park.

The Buggy Walks provide caregivers with under 5’s an avenue to socialise, visit buggy-friendly walks, and get fit at the same time. The walks have been created so buggies can navigate the tracks with ease and caregivers can discover new places to visit with their young ones. These walks are part of a series of monthly events during the year which are held around the Wellington region. This month, its Upper Hutt’s turn to show off the beautiful scenery of Harcourt Park and the surrounding area.

The team will be meeting from 10.00 am at the play grounds in Harcourt Park. Walk commences at 10.30 am and will be roughly and hour in duration. There will be coffee from L’Affare and snacks from Southern Cross Restaurant & Bar.

Picnic and Play, Thursday, 21 February, 5.00 pm — 7.00 pm, Pinehaven Reserve.

For those who want to have fun and avoid the heat of the day, join the team at Activation for a Picnic and Play at Pinehaven Reserve on the evening of Thursday, 21 February.

Activation will bring along the Play Pod full of loose parts as well as setting up friendly games of football. Tobilo’s Pizza Bus, and Hungerball, will be joining us. “We see this as a perfect opportunity for the community to get out together and spend some time in one of the fantastic recreational areas that Upper Hutt has to offer,” says Council’s Community Recreation Advisor, Steph Reichardt.

The Gas Hub’s Parks and Places runs until 31 March 2019.
