|Abstract||The land included within the Belmont Park is made up of a stretch of hills
that lie between the Wellington and the Porirua harbours. Over time, from
the arrival of Maori through to the settlement of Europeans in the district,
both harbours have been important for their resources and as places of
occupation. It is not surprising then, that the peoples who have occupied
the greater Wellington district, soon found routes to link these two harbours.
It was over the lands that now lay within the Belmont Regional Park that
these links were established. From pre-European tracks, to the building
of permanent roads, these links provide a consistent theme and vehicle
to tell the history of the lands within the Park
