Restoring Rosedale Park

Restoring Rosedale Park – Te Hōnonga a Iwi

Our Aims:

Give the local community a renewed sense of belonging to the park by engaging a range of stakeholders in the project, including nearby residents, community groups, local iwi, educational and tertiary institutes in the area, sporting bodies using the park and the Albany business sector.

Undertake a planting and pest management programme, using bio-organic methodologies, that will promote soil health and water quality, improve tree survival and create a safer environment for birds and wildlife within the park and the wider surrounds.

Provide ongoing analysis of water quality, aquatic and land biodiversity, bird counts and pest management counts and control. Document the ecological, social and commercial outcomes of the project.

Offer environmental learning opportunities to all ages and abilities through involvement in the project.

Identify the feasibility of using bioorganisms and bio-organic processes to control weed, with a view to expanding this approach across Tāmaki Makaurau. Follow the principles of Whakatairanga Tikanga Māori, environmental sustainability and social connectivity.
