Wainoni Park is a cherished park in Greenhithe used widely by the community.
The Friends of Wainoni Park are members of the community that have an interest in getting together to help restore waterways, remove pest plants, carry out pest control and beautify the park. Friends of Wainoni Park meets regularly on Thursday mornings during term time at 9.30 am outside the amenities block (located down the far end of the car park). Everyone is welcome! It is great fitness and fun.
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 on Thursday mornings at 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 Facebook @FriendsofWainoniPark page and send out an email to those who have registered their interest.

Tauhinui Historic Reserve is part of a Special Ecological Area that runs from Upper Harbour Drive toward Beachhaven. Every Thursday morning or early afternoon committed volunteers hike into this wilderness and remove plant and animal pests.
