Kev the Kiwi events

Kev the Kiwi is a fun and exciting way to get active in your Regional Parks. In collaboration with Upper Hutt City Council and Hutt City Council, Kev travels around the region encouraging children and adults alike to get out and about in green spaces.

Events happen each Thursday in January during the school holidays. These events typically involve a short walk (many are buggy friendly) and games session with the kids. Kev will be there to spread some cheer and spot prizes are given out.

Please visit the Kev the Kiwi page for event dates.

HUHA Paws in the Park events
