Media release: Cass Square current closure

17 March 2021


Cass Square current closure

Following the Wildfoods Festival Event Cass Square has remained closed.

Simon Bastion, Chief Executive, says, “We apologise to the community for the closure but due to the unfortunate timing of the Covid-19 Level 2 restrictions Hokitika Lions had to reschedule the Children’s Day event. The two events share the hired equipment so the park remained closed after Wildfoods finished to keep the equipment securely on-site. The fences also improve safety for the families attending Children’s Day. They are both important events for the community so it’s great that no one has to miss out. We appreciate the community’s patience and expect the park to reopen early next week.
