Carved into a Waikato hillside, this formerly derelict quarry has been transformed into a 42-acre garden and arboretum. Planting, which started in 1991, has been designed to use and enhance the landscape of rocky outcrops, ponds, flowing water, and broad vistas toward Mt. Pirongia.
The Arboretum has been awarded the prestigious ‘Garden of Significance’ status from the New Zealand Garden Trust. It is the location of New Zealand’s most extensive sculpture gallery.
The Meteor Theatre and the Waikato Sculpture Park Trust would like to invite you to an Open Day on Saturday the 19th of May from 10am to 2pm.
Held in the Nancy Caiger Gallery at The Meteor Theatre, the exhibition features works by artists who are exhibiting at Sculpture Park in Waitakaruru.
