The area which is now Trelissick Park has a long
history - predating its Park status. The
Group (TPG) history is much more recent - officially commencing with the
first meeting of the Group on 17 June 1991. 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.
Onslow Historian publications by the Onslow Historical Society on the Trelissick Park Group - Volumes 39 and 40.
has documented the group's history in detail in two Onslow Historical
publications - Volumes 39 and 40 - both published in 2013. The History
Trelissick Park Group - Part One (Volume 39) covers from 1991 to 2000.
Part Two (Volume 40) of the history covers the years 2000 to 2013.
Many thanks to the Onslow Historical Society for its help in documenting the history of the area.
