About this blog

Everything you ever wanted to know about Dunedin’s town belt. Past, present, future management, the species that occur there, where the belt cats go and what they’re eating!

We hope that the blog will be of interest to folks of all ages in Dunedin. We’d like to hear from you – have you seen anything unusual in the town belt? We also encourage you to upload photos of plants, animals and play in the town belt.

We hope to produce a podcast which can be downloaded as a guided north-south tour of the belt!

There are many access points to the 4km long strip running through the city: from the Oval, Montecillo Ground, Mornington Park, Jubilee Park, Belleknowles Golf Course, Robin Hood Park, Littlebourne Ground, Moana Pool, Prospect Park, the Gardens Ground and Opoho Park. There is a network of tracks through Unity Park, Woodhaugh Gardens and the Northern and Southern Cemeteries. Woodhaugh Gardens is said to be the ‘jewel in Dunedin’s Town Belt’ with remnant lowland native swamp forest set amongst sweeping lawns and some impressive Kahikatea.

Congratulations on your site. I spotted it in the Star. My research interests include urban green spaces as socially produced spaces on a continuum through to wilderness (equally socially produced). The green sustainable city has to be the goal and our green belt could be contributing so much more if there was more money put into it.
I’ll keep visiting.
