A community driven development

Welcome to our park – Nau Mai Haere Mai

The land was gifted to Tauranga residents by the late Frank Sydenham. Frank was one of the first ever Massey University students to graduate with a Masters Degree in Horticulture. He went on to become a well known market gardener producing fruit and flowers from this Millers Rd property.

Today the land is being developed by the community into a botanic park with a subtropical emphasis and open grass space. Together we can enhance our natural environment and leave a legacy for future generations to enjoy.

Open to the public 7 days a week. See you there!
