The Trelissick Park Group is raising funds for a footbridge across Kaiwharawhara Stream. This will link with a new access track into Trelissick Park from Oban Street, Wadestown. The project is being managed by Wellington City Council, with completion expected around May next year.
The new footbridge and track will improve access from Wadestown/Highland Park, expand walking opportunities in the Park and surroundings, as well as provide access to a new area of the Park for restoration and pest control.
The total that the Trelissick Park Group has to find for the footbridge is estimated at $100,000, including gst and contingency. So far donations stand at around $54,000. The Group is applying for grants and has set up a ‘Givealittle’ page at https://givealittle.co.nz/cause/kaiwharawhara-stream-footbridge-for-new-trelissick. Any contributions would be greatly appreciated.
