It is hoped tracks at Ross Creek in Dunedin will be reopened by the end of the year.
Tracks around the dam have been closed while the council has carried on work, costing more than $8.6million, to strengthen the 150-year-old reservoir.
A new footbridge was recently lifted into place.
On social media the council said it was hoped the tracks would be reopened by the end of the year.
However, there was more work to do on footpaths and fencing, and the reopening date could be affected by weather.
