The Sculpture Park at Waitakaruru Arboretum is a former quarry that has been transformed into a 17.5 hectare  arboretum with more than 20,000 trees from around the world. The rehabilitation started in 1991. Along the 2 km long nature trail you will discover more than 100 sculptures and installations within one of New Zealand’s largest outdoor galleries .   All of our sculptures are NZ made, some tell thought-provoking NZ stories.

Sustainability of nature and art are the driving forces of the park. Formed from derelict land, its trees are now protected long-term for carbon sequestration. The park promotes sustainable creative inspiration.

The park is a not-for-profit environmental and cultural enterprise that provides visitors with an intriguing walk that sparks creative ideas for all ages.  This art-in-nature experience aims to inspire imaginations, nourish inquisitive minds, and provide for creative learning in an accessible wilderness environment.

Open Sundays (10am to 5pm)
