Art in Nature Arboretum Trust

Your donation helps to ensure the continuation of The Sculpture Park - a vital resource for nature and art lovers throughout the Waikato.

Waikato

The Sculpture Park at Waitakaruru is a source of inspiration for art and nature lovers throughout the Waikato and all of New Zealand. It is run by a charitable trust.

Entry fees are not sufficient to cover the costs of running the park and so the trust depends on grants and donations to ensure its contInued existence.

The park was established more than 30 years ago by its founders John and Dorothy Wakeling whose vision was to rehabilitate a disused quarry situated close to Hamilton and Cambridge and transform it into an arboretum and garden of national significance and a setting for works of art.

The park now covers 17.5 hectares and contains more than 20,000 trees and over 100 New Zealand sculptures and artworks, providing an environment to inspire the imagination, spark environmentally sustainable creativity and nourish inquisitive minds.
