Settlers Park Swanson

Settlers Park is located in the heart of the Swanson Village. The design of the park has been generated from the range of commercial enterprises that lead to the founding of Swanson. These include the kauri industry, the railway and the horticultural activities and each of these has been represented in the park

LA4 prepared the landscape development plans for the park. Key components of the development were the incorporation of design elements reflecting the heritage aspects of the village including rough-hewn timber, water, hoggin surfacing and specimen shade tree planting.

The park provides a meeting place for the local community and visitors in an environment that reflects the history of Swanson and acknowledges the founding settlers.
