Friday 04 September 2020


The Tauranga City Council want to know what you like about The Historic Village. They have published a survey where you can suggest any improvements and what you would like to see in the future. 


The Historic Village has been apart of Tauranga rich history as far back as 1972, when plans were prepared for a Historic Village, depicting what Tauranga was between 1880 and 1920. The village was built on the 14 acre Thomas Wrigley Reserve at the western end of 17th Avenue and it finally opened 11 December 1976.
