Vision: Trelissick Park will be a healthy wilderness of representative indigenous ecosystems: native bush, steep hillside, rocky outcrop, riparian and freshwater.  It will be an attractive and desirable area, freely accessible for all to visit and enjoy.

Trelissick Park Group (TPG) works in conjunction with Wellington City Council (WCC) and Greater Wellington Regional Council (GW), restoring Trelissick Park to a native bush wilderness. 

The Park has suffered from early farming, logging, work on road, rail and sewer systems, also stream sedimentation / erosion / pollution/ flooding from the large urban catchment area. 

TPG have bi-monthly working bees, an adopt-a-spot scheme, animal pest control volunteers, supplemented at times by restoration work by corporate and school groups, Conservation Volunteers, Sustainable Coastlines and individuals.

TPG membership is drawn from Highland Park Progressive Association Inc., Ngaio Crofton Downs Residents' Association Inc., Onslow Historical Society Inc., Private Landowners' Group, Royal Forest and Bird Protection Society (Wellington Branch), Wellington Botanical Society, Wadestown Residents' Association - all have been involved at various times.
