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 from around the world. The rehabilitation started in 1991. 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.  All of our sculptures are NZ made, some tell thought-provoking NZ stories. 

Sustainability of nature and art are the driving forces of the park. Formed from derelict land, its trees are now protected long-term for carbon sequestration. The park is run by a charitable trust providing environmental and creative inspiration.
