It’s Parks Week next week, so join a park ranger and go for a walk – or power up your smartphone and take yourself off into Wellington’s beautiful parks using our new My Parx app.

Parks Week, from Saturday 2 to Friday 8 March, is an annual celebration of the important role that parks play in today’s busy world.

Starting on Saturday, a series of events are being held to celebrate the city’s green spaces. Children can enjoy a teddy bears’ picnic, people of all ages can take part in special park ranger-guided walk. 

The Parks Week theme this year is ‘Get Healthy by Nature’, highlighting the crucial role parks play in the health of our communities, and Australians and New Zealanders are being urged to get out and enjoy them.
