The Mokoia Community Association worked alongside the Eastside Community Collective for this youth space and had strong support from the Rotorua Lakes Council.
They have spent the past few years discussing with young people what their space could look like and be talking with the community.
They held workshops with Eastside schools about what they would like to see and took young people out to other youth spaces.
One of the Youth Space’s features is a community stage, which the Rotorua East Lions worked on.
It is the only outdoor community stage in Rotorua with mobility access, and 1113 hours were spent on its building.
Rotorua East Lions Club president Linda Cousins said it was wonderful to have this space officially opened.
“It was amazing to see a lot of the community, especially the rangatahi, marveling at the space.”
She said the Lions Club was a service organization and a way they could give back and be involved in the community.
