Nelson is blessed with some wonderful parks and reserves for everyone to enjoy.

We are also blessed with some amazing volunteers who work with Council to look after these special places. 

This work is managed through the Adopt a Spot programme. This is where community groups, schools, businesses and individuals have a voluntary agreement to enhance and take care of an area of Council land.

Adopt a Spot activities that can be taken on by a group include:

  • Planting
  • Weeding
  • Rubbish clean-ups
  • Animal Pest control
  • Wildlife and environmental monitoring
  • Gardening
  • Fruit tree maintenance
  • Park furniture maintenance

If you, your community group, business or friends and neighbours think you’d like to play a part in looking after and improving our awesome parks and reserves today, get in touch with Council to find out more.
