Current restricted NO DOG areas in place

From 17 July to 10 September we are lambing and calving at Cornwall Park. During this time to protect the vulnerable new livestock and give them the best chance of survival, restricted areas around the animals are NO dog areas. The restricted areas are the farm paddocks on the park's eastern side - indicated here on our map.

On-leash dogs are permitted OUTSIDE the restricted zones during this time. Cornwall Park is an on-leash park, including the sports fields along Puriri Drive.

We are lambing and calving!

Each year Cornwall Park welcomes new lambs and calves from late July through to mid-September. During this time there are restrictions in some areas of the park for the safety of our animals and you. We have a small area where strictly NO dogs are permitted during this period too, for the safety of the newborns.

Our farmers are keeping a careful eye on the animals but do not need to be present during the birthing process. If you see a new baby by itself, its mother will not be far away, so please do not try to touch the animal as it can disturb the mothering process.

If you see anything that you think we need to know about, please call Huia Lodge between 8 am to 4.30 pm daily on (09) 630 8485. After hours, please call 021 686 778.
