Recreational Services began working with Tauranga City Council on 1st July 2011 after winning the contract to look after the city’s sports parks. This was Recreational Services' first contract in the Bay of Plenty, which provided a fresh start for the company in the area.

Since then further contracts have been added, including Papamoa College, ACG School, and Bay Park Stadium's ground maintenance. We have built up a large clientele of schools, carrying out seasonal turf renovation work as and where needed. Baypark Stadium is another site we help with renovation work to the stadium field following various events it hosts, including Baypark Speedway and the ENZED V8 Jetsprints jet-boat races.

Tauranga is a growing and vibrant city. With a population of over 128,000 people, which has almost doubled in the last 20 years, it is expected to reach 163,000 or more by 2033.

Covering an area of 13,440 hectares, Tauranga city extends from Bethlehem in the north where there are significant new developments, to the new growth areas of Pyes Pa and Ohauiti in the west and east, and to Papamoa and the large-scale residential sites currently being constructed and built.

The landscape is dominated by the volcanic cone of Mauao (Mount Maunganui), the harbour, long white beaches and the Kaimai Range to the west.
