The Splore Way

  • Respect - ourselves, each other and all the bird, bees, plants and rivers that surround us
  • Make “choice” choices - refuse before we reuse, think ahead, and buy once, buy well
  • Leave No Trace - we aim for zero waste
  • Feel great, doing good - hug a stranger, be a mindful consumer and
  • Do it everyday - take the goodness home and keep your mind, and your heart, open. 

Waahi Tapu

Tapapakanga Park is steeped in significant archaeological sites that are important records of history of the tangata whenua Ngati Whanaunga and Ngati Paoa and are protected by law. Please respect these areas they are clearly marked and are off limits to the Splore audience.
