Our parks and gardens contribute to our personal health and wellbeing. Council manages approximately 320 hectares of parkland and associated infrastructure, such as picnic shelters, BBQs, seating, boardwalks, fences and public toilets and the management of approx. 50,000 urban trees.
Council is also responsible for moving the Wellington community towards a more sustainable future and strives to ensure that “Wellington’s natural environment and landscape is clean, diverse, beautiful, accessible and protected” as per our Wellington 2030 Vision.
Hosting an event in our parks and gardens will require permission and/or permits. In the interests of the broader community Council reserves the right to decide on the appropriateness of any events planned. Visit the Hosting an Event page for further guidance. Our Sustainable Events checklist is a useful tool to help you reduce the environmental impact of your event.
