PUBLIC NOTICE - Shakespear Regional Park closure
From 1 July to approximately mid December, most of Shakespear Regional Park will be closed to the public while an pest eradication programme is carried out behind the pest proof fence; to create an open and accessible wildlife sanctuary integrated with recreation and farming, similar to Tawharanui Regional Park. The duration of the park closure is weather dependent; details of the reopening date will be posted on the council calendar and website closer to the reopening. Army and Okoromai Bays will remain open to the public during this period, except on days when three aerial bait applications will be undertaken. For up to date information on park closure status contact the Auckland Council on 09 3010101. For further information regarding Shakespear Open Sanctuary visit or email

is there any orienteering going on out there - it looks like a cool place.

I think it is a big crock of shit closing the park.

We don't close our houses or farms if we have a lot of rat baiting going on.

Unfortunately any manager of public land has to assume, where potential hazards are involved, the public will always include a proportion of idiots who will (or surviving members of their family will) always look for Somebody Else to hold responsible for their own stupidity. Whereas as a private land owner you have at least some control over which particular idiots come onto your land at any given time. And wisely you choose the ones who generally hold each other responsible for their own stupidity....
