Run an event in a park

All the regional parks are hugely popular for running events. With a wide range of facilities and activities each park is unique in its capabilities.

If you would like to run an event in any of the regional parks, please contact  the appropriate park ranger to discuss your ideas and to obtain the relevant forms so that you can apply for a concession. The relevent information for each park can be reached below. Commercial activities require a full concession that is processed at GW's Wellington office. Most non-commercial activities require a streamlined concession that is processed by a park ranger.  In most cases you also require a health and safety plan.

You should allow at least 15 working days for your application to be processed.

For more information about applying for a concession please contact the Concessions Officer at the Wellington office:
