Woolston Urban Forest Opening Ceremony
16/10/2017 at 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Come and celebrate the opening of Woolston’s new urban forest – a stunning new reserve transformed from an unused school field.
Thousands of native trees and plants have been planted on the former Lower Linwood fields site which will also act as a storage basin, reducing flooding in the surrounding area.
It’s hoped the 2.75 hectare forest will attract native birds back to Woolston. It will be accessible to the public during the day with a sealed pathway and boardwalk bridges to explore and enjoy a piece of wilderness in a residential area.
Join in on the opening of this amazing legacy project for the city.
