The Rifle Range
The Rifle Range is an outdoor theatre and recreation facility located along Bomb Point Drive on the Coastal Walkway.
The Rifle Range Kit is now available for all to enjoy onsite. Students from the two Hobsonville Point schools assisted with the choice of gear and games, which was then purchased by HLC. HLC also assisted the Hobsonville Community Trust with purchasing a sound system for the community to use onsite. All equipment is locked in storage but can be accessed by texting the mobile number listed on the wall by the storage room next to the stage.
The range may be made available for organized events for large numbers of people, events with a commercial aspect or private events for which it may need to be closed to the public. Such bookings are dealt with on a case by case basis. Contact HLC via firstname.lastname@example.org at least 20 working days beforehand to enquire.
HLC are currently overseeing the facility (as of July 2017) but it will be transferred to Auckland Council ownership and management later this year.
The toilets by the range are locked and unlocked daily:
- 1 April – 30 September – 7am to 7pm*
- 1 October – 31 March – 7am to 9pm*
*please note that these hours may be subject to review depending on demand
