Kani Rangi Park includes the confluence of two streams and the Rangitaiki River, Ngāti Manawa’s tipuna awa, a famed habitat for eels and other native species and of Murupara, the local taniwha. The vision of Te Rūnanga o Ngāti Manawa is to restore the 10 hectare reserve to a native podocarp/hardwood high forest for biodiversity, cultural and recreational values, and in so doing contribute to a national movement to plant more native trees to mitigate climate change. The Runanga has worked with Landscape Architect Richard Hart to produce a development plan for the park. Partners in the project include Te Roopu Manaaki, local schools, Environment Bay of Plenty, Whakatāne District Council, Kaingaroa Timberlands Ltd, the Department of Conservation, the NZ Transport Agency and the Fish and Game Council. The Ngā Whenua Rāhui Fund has contributed to cultural training and upskilling. Trees That Count has supported this project with native trees in 2016 and 2017.
