Central Park is part of the Town Belt, and is one of Wellington City’s oldest public parks. With the Moturoa stream running through it, the park extends for 13 hectares from the edge of the CBD and Te Aro Valley up to the suburb of Brooklyn. It contains mature stands of native and exotic trees, walking tracks, gardens and picnic areas, plus a playground with the two best flying foxes in the city.

CVNZ assists the Friends of Central Park by replanting and maintaining the stream area, rubbish clearance, the planting of trees and spring bulbs, and improving park entrance areas with amenity planting. You can expect some or all of these tasks at the upcoming working bee!

What to bring/wear: sturdy boots, long sleeves and pants, waterproof jacket essential. Layering and wearing a hat or beanie is a good way to stay warm. Bring a water bottle and some food.

What we provide: all tools and gloves provided as well as training and an experienced team leader.

Free transport available from Z station on Vivian Street or our office at 21B Manchester Tce, Melrose (bookings essential). Alternative meet the team on site at 9 (details on exact meeting point available on request).
