Curry’s Bush reopens
Posted at 12:00pm Wednesday 31 Mar, 2021
The bush is home to thriving stands of Kauri.
The public is invited to see the transformation of Curry's Bush in Wellsford at its reopening on Saturday, April 10, at 10am.
Wellsford Lions is hosting the opening ceremony, which will include complimentary refreshments from chef Maja Pedovic-Moors.
The bush has a new boardwalk trail, two kauri dieback stations and is wheelchair accessible.
The project was funded by Auckland Council through the environment targeted rate.
Kaumatua Herby Skipper will speak at the opening about the history of the bush.
He will be joined by Rodney College's head boy to discuss future collaborations with the school, including the building of a carved waharoa (gateway).
The bush, which has been closed for nearly two years, has been designed to be a “living classroom” for the college and Wellsford School.
There will be shuttles leaving from the Wellsford Community Centre for elderly for the opening. Others are invited to walk to the bush at 17 Wi Apo Place.
