Gore Town Belt

The Gore Town Belt is highly valued by the District's residents.

It extends from Hokonui Drive in the North, along Preston Street to Ardwick Street and in a southerly direction to Main Street, at the Crombie Street intersection. From there it turns in an easterly direction along Hyde Street to River Street.

The reserve has many uses. First it provides a green belt, which separates the Gore business and industrial sectors from the residential sector. It could also be seen as part of the "lungs" of the town.

The scenic qualities of the town belt are an important feature of Gore. It is a landmark that is identifiable by the presence of open spaces, with smaller growing trees and shrubs bounded by mature shelter trees.

The town belt also provides areas for passive recreation, as well as areas for active sporting and recreational activities for organised clubs and casual public users, and serves as a green open space to the greater Gore community

Our main civic administration building and the town's civic centre, the James Cumming Wing, are both located on the town belt; as is the cenotaph commemorating the District's sons who died at war.
