Art in the Park

An artistic feast of sculptures awaits those who visit the Park. We have over thirty works of outdoor art on permanent display.

Mediums used include Hinuera Stone, pottery, and ponga (tree fern trunk), in sizes ranging from small pottery pieces to man sized stone sculptures.

We actively promote outdoor art and hold Sculpture Symposiums within the Park.

Come along and see some of the talent that our wonderful local sculptors have to offer.
