Long Bay - Okura Great Park Society

The Long Bay Okura Great Park Society was formed in 1996 to convince local, regional and central government to work together with us for the creation of a 1000 acre Great Park at Long Bay - Okura in North Auckland. In order to preserve this coastline this vision still remains however due to the impact on impending urbanisation of the area our efforts are now concentrated on saving the existing rural aspect and environmental values of the present parkland and protecting the adjacent marine reserve.

We are always grateful for donation to help the environmental work being done by the society to protect the Long Bay Okura Marine and Land Reserves. Click here to Donate. All donations are tax-deductible and will receive a tax receipt.
