About the Park

The Sculpture Park at Waitakaruru Arboretum is a former quarry that has been transformed into a magnificent 17.5 hectare  arboretum. The rehabilitation started in 1991 enhancing the existing features: rocky outcrops, ponds, flowing water and broad vistas. Along the 2 km long nature trail you will discover more than 50 sculptures and installations within one of New Zealand's largest outdoor galleries . Dramatic changes in light and foliage, wildlife, and vistas guarantee a breathtaking experience 

Share the Park Campaign

We want to foster a ground swell of support to reopen the sculpture park and arboretum as a free-entry public space. This would enable many more people to enjoy it. All we need is to cover the costs of maintaining the park and any health and safety concerns.  To learn more see our video:
