Wainoni Park is a cherished park in Greenhithe used widely by the community.

Friends of Wainoni Park is a new group being established by members of the community that have an interest in getting together to help restore the main waterway flowing through Wainoni Park, to carry out pest control and to help enhance Wainoni Park. Friends of Wainoni Park will meet regularly on Thursday mornings at 9.30 am outside the amenities block (located down the far end of the car park). This is an opportunity for all members of the community to come along, meet other people and help enhance Wainoni Park.

Activities that you can be involved with:
• Rescuing native plants from weeds
• Planting native plants
• Carrying out wildlife surveys
• Revitalising the edible garden
• Setting up trap lines
• Checking traps for pests

If you would like to join a great bunch of enthusiastic people, come along to the first volunteer morning on Thursday 6 September, 9.30 am. No conservation skills/experience is required. Equipment (spades, gloves etc.) will be provided, but please wear appropriate clothing and closed toed footwear. Hot drinks and morning tea will be provided. In the event of bad weather we will put a note on the Friends of Wainoni Park Facebook page and send out an email to those who have registered their interest. For further information please contact nicola@greenhithecommunitytrust.org.nz
