Neighbours and urban park rangers will hold two volunteer planting days in West Broken Run this winter season.

Come and join a family-friendly planting day in your community and turn this neighbourhood park into a place where wildlife and people love to visit.

West Broken Run Reserve is a relatively new park in Wigram. It has the upper limits of the Ōpawaho Heathcote River running through its heart and planting it up will help keep the waterway healthy. Register(external link) to get your free BBQ sausage.
