The Friends of Pukekura Park, New Plymouth, Inc. was formed in 1996 with the aim to see the special nature of Pukekura Park maintained and celebrated as unique. We assist the Park staff where appropriate, encouraging the public to enjoy the Park and be involved with activities which are in keeping with the unique natural character of the Park.

The ‘Pukekura Park Portal Project’ was the pilot project for T.E.R:R.A.I.N, a Community Partnership Fund project, which was coordinated by The Friends of Pukekura Park in partnership with Puke Ariki, New Plymouth.

Research projects in Pukekura Park
60 Springs environmental sustainability project was run by Puke Ariki and sponsored by Shell NZ and the Taranaki Regional Council. For some years school students’ field research was based in Pukekura Park, surveying birdlife and frogs, and collecting data on weather and water quality following the Environmental Monitoring and Action Project guidelines. Results from the projects may be seen on the Pukekura Park Kete. Schools which may like to follow on with such projects are welcome to contact us. Whilst the 60 Springs Project is no longer sponsored the framework may be used.
