The car park opposite the black house on Tarawera Rd will be closed temporarily while construction is underway to widen the entrance to the new forest hub.
As part of the new forest hub development currently underway off Tarawera Road, the entrance to this hub is being widened.
"The construction of the new entrance will begin on Monday October 14 and will mean that the current small dirt car park, opposite the black house on Tarawera Road, will be closed from Monday (this car park is marked as No.2 on the map below)," says a post on the Rotorua Lakes Council Facebook page.
"The car park is scheduled to be open again by the Christmas/New Year break but we will keep you posted on how work progresses.
"Recommended alternative parking is down the road at Lake Tikitapu or at one of the other forest hubs such as Waipa or Long Mile Road.
"We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this work and appreciate your continued patience throughout this development."
