Urban rangerPark rangers

Christchurch City Council park rangers supervise, maintain, enhance and protect our urban and regional parks – from the small patch of green at the end of your street to the tussock-covered hills of Banks Peninsula and the Port Hills. 

The work of the park rangers is diverse and demanding. But they can't do it alone – they need your help.
