New Carpark for Blackball

In 2017 Grey District Council received funding from the Tourism and Infrastructure Fund to install a new public toilet block and carpark in the Blackball township.

The toilet block was completed in 2019, however, Council needed to source a suitable location for the carpark before work was able to begin.


With the toilet block and carpark now complete, the next step will be installation of a rubbish bin at the location.


The carpark completed by contractors Westroads Greymouth, provides space for people to park when they are visiting Blackball and or walking the Department of Conservation's Great Paparoa Walk.
