Akaroa Heritage Park

'Put your roots down in Akaroa, plant a tree!.' The Akaroa Heritage Park is accessible from Long Bay Road or on foot via Woodill's Track. Since it was established in 1992, over 1000 native trees have been planted by individual tree enthusiasts. For more information about Heritage Park contact Virginia Wigram on 03 304 8556 or Jeremy Buchanan on 03 304 8445.

These plantings are on-going by locals and visitors, the latest by students from the Akaroa Area School. There are also sections set aside for European and Australian trees.

For a fee you may plant a tree to commemorate a significant event or just your joy of being up in "The Park with a View". If you wish to plant a tree, do ring Jeremy Buchanan on 03 304 8445 or Virginia Wigram 03 304 8556.
