We are currently at Alert Level 1, and all tracks are open. Please check in using QR codes at the car parks. Thank you.
Sheep are currently grazing in the Park. Please be mindful of them when on the trails and keep dogs under control at all times.
Possum control work will be carried out in Te Mata Park from 6th to 30th April. Bait stations containing Double Tap Pellet Baits to control possums and rats will be placed through the Park by a HBRC contractor to assist in protecting our native wildlife. Poison warning notices will be located at all public access areas to Te Mata Park.
During this time please don’t let young children wander unsupervised or allow dogs to roam & scavenge. Feral animals could contain toxic residues and should not be eaten.
Please avoid any green pellets on the ground and get in touch if you see any so that we can have them removed.
If you have any questions, please contact Travis Cullen from CC Pest Control Ltd by email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 027 769 4112

All tracks are officially open
The tracks through the harvested areas are now open! These areas are not without risks and we urge you to:
- Please stay on the tracks
- Do not climb on the mulch piles or slash heaps
We are working on replanting these areas with native trees so please be mindful of the new plantings as well. Thank you!
There are sheep in the Park currently.
When sheep are in the park:
Please keep your dogs under control and in your sight at all times. Dogs that are prone to running off or worrying sheep MUST be on a lead.
If you are mountain biking in the park please look out for the sheep, especially if you are going at speed.
