Neighbours and urban park rangers will hold two volunteer planting days in West Broken Run this winter season.

Coming soon!

Join Park Rangers and local community as we turn this neighbourhood park into a place where wildlife and people love to visit! 

West Broken Run Reserve is a relatively new park in Wigram. It has the upper limits of the Ōpawaho Heathcote River running through its heart and planting it up will help keep the waterway healthy.   

What to bring

  • Weather appropriate clothing - layers, rain jacket, hat
  • Sturdy shoes or gumboots
  • Water bottle and snack
  • Gardening gloves and tools will be available but bring your own spade if you can
