Te Puna Quarry Park, Tauranga Overview

The Te Puna Quarry Park is built and maintained by volunteers, and the first set of plantings in the area took place in the year 1997. The park is known for its specialised plant groups and the different types of gardens such as the Australian Area, the Palm Grove, the Herb Garden, Mixed Ornamentals, the Fuschia Area, the Magnolias, the Butterfly Garden and the Clivias.

The park is also loved by both tourists and locals alike because of the thirty artistic outdoor sculptures that are beautifully made and settled within the park. Most of these sculptures are made of material like the Hinuera stone, tree fern trunks locally known as ponga and pottery in all shapes and sizes.
