Meola Reef Picnic


Auckland City Council, in collaboration with local groups, is holding a community picnic at Meola Reef on Saturday 21 March 2009.

The event will include performances and presentations from local groups, activities for adults and children, and information about opportunities for being a volunteer at Meola Reef (including tree planting, bird counting and water testing).


Meola Reef and the creeks that surround it are beautiful local assets. Many people in the local community visit the Reef and care for the area through tree planting and other activities.

The Meola Reef Community Picnic aims to foster community connection and strengthen a sense of belonging. It provides an opportunity for the local community to enjoy the Reef together and find out how to get involved with caring for the area.


1-5pm, Saturday 21 March 2009 * (Rain date 28 March)


Meola Reef, in the centre and on the northern side of Meola Rd, Pt Chevalier
