Park Closure Notice


The Park will be closed next Monday and Tuesday with no public access.
This is to allow the felling of Willow trees close to walkways and boardwalks in a safe manner. These trees will be replaced with natives in July/August as part of the grant received from MPI to restore areas of the forest that have suffered badly from flooding and invasive species. The project will be continuing for 3 -4 years and will involve clearing around ox-bow ponds. The Trust asks for understanding as some parts of the forest will look rather bare for some time but this is a major opportunity to return the forest to its proper status as a lowland podocarp swamp forest, to open up ponds that have been obscured from public view and to return species that have been lost over many years.
