Trelissick Park Group logo


The area which is now Trelissick Park has a long history - predating its Park status. The Trelissick Park Group (TPG) history is much more recent - officially commencing with the first meeting of the Group on 17 June 1991. The Trelissick Park Group (TPG) is a group of volunteers working on restoration and conservation of the historic park area adjacent to the Ngaio Gorge in Wellington.
