About the Park

The Sculpture Park at Waitakaruru Arboretum is a former quarry that has been transformed into a 17.5 hectare  arboretum with more than 20,000 trees. The rehabilitation started in 1991 utilising the existing features: rocky outcrops, ponds, flowing water and broad vistas. Along the 2 km long nature trail you will discover more than 100 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. 

We provide visitors with a range of ideas to make the most of their visit.  This art-in-nature experience aims to inspire imaginations, nourish inquisitive minds, and provide for creative learning in an accessible wilderness environment.
