For those wishing to organise events within the Park, we ask that you please read our Terms of Access . Any sporting or community event organised by third parties must have prior approval from the Te Mata Park Trust. This also applies to private events involving more than 30 people. The Trust requires a minimum of 14 days notice prior to the proposed event and there are some terms and conditions that will apply. Please complete the Te Mata Park Booking Form HDC 2017 and email it to Lydia Mueller at HDC.
The Te Mata Park Community Committee organises a number of community activities each year. Sign up for our newsletter for updates on events and news from the Park.
Weddings : The Giant Redwoods grove has been a much-loved location for wedding ceremonies and there are other locations within the Park (notably the Summit and in the natural ‘amphitheatre’ near the Saddle car park) that can also be considered. Approval from the Trust is required – for further information and details on how to seek approval, please read the Weddings in Te Mata Park Overview February 2017.
