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.
