Churchill Park is the largest park in Glendowie, Auckland, boasting 40 hectares of mixed farmland and regenerating native bush.

Liaising with the Auckland Council and Local Board to implement the Landscape Concept Plan (Park Management Plan)
Liaising with Council to ensure that park infrastructure protects natural habitats and facilitates access
Carrying out both large and small tree planting projects
Holding regular working bees to care for young plantings and remove invasive weeds
Maintaining a pest control line.
Churchill Park has undergone a remarkable transformation over the years, thanks to the tireless efforts of the community in planting and weeding. The adjacent image gallery offers a visual journey through the park's journey of reforestation and regeneration. From barren lands to a thriving ecosystem, the transformation of Churchill Park is truly inspiring. This gallery is a testament to the power of community-led conservation efforts and the beauty that can be achieved when we work together towards a common goal.
The Friends of Churchill Park meet at 9am on the 1st Sunday of every month (at end of Athlone Road) to plant, weed and maintain native bush. Sign up to join our email list by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
