History

The area which is now Trelissick Park has a long history - predating its Park status. The Trelissick Park Group (TPG) history is much more recent - officially commencing with the first meeting of the Group on 17 June 1991.

Peter Reimann has documented the group's history in detail in two Onslow Historical Society publications - Volumes 39 and 40 - both published in 2013. The History of Trelissick Park Group - Part One (Volume 39) covers from 1991 to 2000. The Trelissick Park Group (TPG) is a group of volunteers working on restoration and conservation of the historic park area adjacent to the Ngaio Gorge in Wellington. Part Two (Volume 40)of the history covers the years 2000 to 2013.

The link below on the Group history is much abbreviated but it is updated yearly as the TPG continues with its work in the park.
