Who we are

In the late 1980’s the Papakura District Council originally purchased the Park land.  In a unique structure the Trust has leased the park from the Council to provide the improvements and amenities.  The Trust’s philosophy being that everyone in the community irrespective of age, gender, physical ability or nationality can use the facilities and services provided, for recreation, leisure or sporting pursuits.

The Trust will continue to build the best facilities that we can whether they be buildings such as the Netball Centre, Gymsport and Recreation Centre, Team Sports Facility, sporting grounds such as the Cricket Ovals or walkways through a scented garden for the blind.  The Park will also always be maintained to a high standard and utilised fully.   The Trust is looking forward to the future of our community and the Park is an investment for future generations of the Papakura and Counties Manukau region.

The Trust is very conscious of the economic demographics of people who live in this region and “The Bruce Pulman Park Trust” has been set up specifically to maintain and manage the park on a self funding basis.  The Park will also operate as a Resource Centre for the many “minor activities and sports” throughout the region who may have fields or playing areas but no clubrooms, computers or administration back up to effectively organise and run their particular activities or train their volunteers.
