About “The Friends”
Friends of Pukekura Park are first and foremost people who love Pukekura Park, Brooklands Park and the associated bush Reserves and wish to safeguard its special character.
- We are a social group, we meet in the evenings several times a year, usually with a speaker and occasionally enjoy a day trip locally or further a field.
- We produce a magazine three times a year to keep members up to date with happenings within the Park, plus providing historical and ecological information relating to the Park, and, of course, there's our Friends' website!
- Some members train to be guides and take tour groups through the Park, others act as tail-end charlies to ensure no one gets lost!
- Volunteers drive the buggy so that less able visitors can enjoy the Park.
- Other volunteers assist Park staff with gardening and pruning tasks.
- A Friends committee works closely with Stuart Robertson, NPDC Parks Manager and Chris Connolly the Curator for Pukekura Park.
