About Te Puna Quarry Park



Te Puna Quarry Park is managed and is being developed by the Te Puna Quarry Park Society Incorporated. A Committee of 10 oversees progress, and plans the future development of the park. The Committee members are all hard working volunteers who bring various skills to the task of running the Park.



At the present time, the Te Puna Quarry Park Society Inc. has a membership of approximately 330 plus 40 supporting companies and organisations.  Many members choose to support passively with their membership subscription alone and others are very generous with their donations. Every member and supporter receives the Society newsletter.  (We hope you take the email option for this). If you would like to join us, please visit the Friends of the Quarry page for more info

Funding comes from donations collected by our donation boxes at the gate, Society membership, donations from members and others, and by applying for grants from local government and charitable funding organisations. If you would like to support us with funding, please consider becoming a friend of the quarry, or donating online
