Kyle Park Management Plan

Approved in 1993. Amendments incorporated on 9 July 2019.

Kyle Park is the largest public park in Hornby, being 8.7 hectares in area, and positioned between Waterloo Road in the north and the railway line to the south.

The park dates back to the early 1970s, when land purchased by the Paparua County Council a few years previously was decided by the Council to be developed as a park for sports purposes and to be named after Councillor Colin W A Kyle, who had been the chair of the Council’s Reserves and Recreation Committee for many years. Further land was added in 1974.

Now the park is managed by the Christchurch City Council and is made up of mostly recreation reserve with a portion at the eastern end held as local purpose (community buildings) reserve.
