The Onetangi Sports Park was developed after earlier plans to develop sport fields at Te Toki Reserve on Wilma Road were abandoned after opposition from some in the community. Land for the $4 million project was acquired from the Rothschild Estate. The park, opened in 2000 with a pre-season game of rugby between Auckland and Canterbury, has two sand-carpeted fields for rugby and soccer and one standard soccer pitch (known as Pitch 3), four artificial surfaced tennis courts, a disc golf course, a mountain bike track, walking tracks and picnic areas. Its two-storyed pavilion is now home to the Waiheke Island Rugby Club. The park was the end result after years of often bitter debate over the future of field sports on the island.
