The Chelsea Regional Park Association (Inc.), or CHERPA, is a group of individual supporters, neighbours and regular users of Chelsea Estate Heritage Park. The society was first formed to preserve and develop the park as a Regional Park potential for future generations. The park sits on a unique and prominent location, with uninterrupted views across Waitemata harbour to the Auckland harbour bridge and city skyline.

Chelsea Estate is part of the Uruamo headland, with a significant Maori and a colonial history. It has great ecological value, with a variety of habitats parkland, man-made lakes, wetland, streams and native bush. It is an important link in the North-West Wildlink.

We warmly welcome new members - to join our Regional Park campaign, protect the park from future development or help with maintenance, such as the removal of pest plants and monitoring of the lakes. We also welcome your suggestions for park improvement.  Membership $5 per person / $10 per organisation. Email [email protected] to sign up.
