The Trelissick Park Group members are all volunteers - donating their labour and much else. However, there is always a requirement for funding for plant purchases and special projects. We have ongoing plant nursery costs (potting mix/fertiliser) and running costs (eg photocopying, stationery).
We are currently looking for funding for a footbridge across the Kaiwharawhara Stream upstream from the debris trap, to connect with a proposed track coming down from Oban St, Wadestown. Currently many residents of Wadestown and Highland Park do not visit the Park as they have only one entrance, whereas there are six from the other side of the valley. Many residents and users participated in the recent Council survey, showing support by a large majority for the proposed second entrance. 

The new footbridge and track from Wadestown will expand walking opportunities in the Park and in the surroundings, as well as access to a new area of the Park for restoration and pest control.

Any donations would be greatly appreciated. In particular we have set up a 'givealittle' fund to directly receive donations for the Kaiwharawhara Stream Footbridge. 

Kaiwharawhara Footbridge Donations:

If you prefer, a cheque for any donation can be made out to Trelissick Park Group. And if you want to pay direct into the Park account our Treasurer Frances Lee will be able to advise the account number. See below contact list for contact details.

We can assure you that any donation will be entirely spent on behalf of improving the Park for all users.
