What is the Council planning for the park?

The Wellington City Council is trying to encourage the development of the park by creating walkways and footpaths so the public have more activities to do there. They are making reserves so that existing plants can grow more.

Part of the park is scrub but they are trying to encourage the growth of such native trees as titoki, tawa, pukatea, hinau, kaiko-mako, mahoe and rewarewa.
