Te Mata Park is one of the most visited, and most treasured attractions in the region. Te Mata Park welcomes nearly 1 million visitors every year. As the largest public green space in Hawke's Bay, the Park is a vital recreational asset for our local community.

The Park is administered by a Trust Board, a group of 7 volunteers who manage the operations and projects within the Park. This includes establishing tracks, maintenance, signage, equipment, planting natives and paying for contractors to work in the Park.

The Trust Board are aware of the growing demands being placed on the Park, with increasing numbers of visitors every year. The Board are aware of the delicate balance in addressing the Park's infrastructure / development, whilst also preserving its integrity and natural rugged beauty.

As a public asset that is owned by a private trust, the Park is financially reliant on support from local councils, as well as our community, to ensure that this iconic landmark in Hawke's Bay is protected and enhanced for future generations to enjoy.

We invite you to support Te Mata Park, the jewel in Hawke's Bay's crown.

Thank you.
