The Pit Park People Society Inc. are a volunteer community group working in partnership with Palmerston North City Council (PNCC). The group has a memorandum of understanding with the PNCC and are working to mitigate a former clay/shingle quarry that had become an urban industrial wasteland. The 6.3 hectare site is being restored with native plantings, wetlands are being developed and the site is becoming a passive recreation space for the community to enjoy. We welcome donations of time and energy from willing workers, donations of native plant species endemic to the Manawatu, any financial assistance that may be available etc.
