Trelissick Park is a 22 ha strip of native bush which encompasses a beautiful area of hills, stream and native bush below Ngaio Gorge Road. The park is ecologically important as it contains a relatively intact urban stream and is a corridor for bird life. Trelissick Park Group plays a large role in restoring the area. Trelissick Park was once a route for Maori and early Europeans travelling from the harbour to Porirua.
On this day we'll be planting trees and lending our support to the Trelissick Park Group, a committed group of local people who have been methodically removing weeds and planting in the park for over 15 years. Come along and lend a hand, it'll be a beautiful day out in an urban paradise.
