Miropiko Reserve is a national taonga. Its location within an urban environment and containing the remaining physical evidence of the pa structures is a significant taonga to Ngaati Wairere, and also a valuable educational resource for the wider Hamilton community.
The Miropiko Care Group are undertaking the riverside restoration of this park in conjunction with the Miropiko Reserve Management Plan.
The main focus of the group at present is the removal of the weed tradescantia (wandering willie) from the reserve. They are aiming to have the park clear of this invasive weed.
Come along and meet other locals with similar interests and gain native plant knowledge and restoration experience.
A significant amount of information is included in the Miropiko Reserve Management plan in relation to the history and this park future developments.
