A smart little city

Project: Greenspace Maintenance Contract

Date: 1995 - ongoing

Client: Nelson City Council

Location: Nelson


With just over 50,000 residents, Nelson is a smart little city nestled in the eastern side of Tasman Bay at the top of the South Island. Enjoying a renowned micro-climate and easy access to stunning natural landscapes, Nelson has always been a sought after lifestyle destination. Increasingly it is recognised as a highly connected commercial hub - a place that’s bustling with innovative creative enterprise activity.

For 25 years, Nelmac has held the responsibility for managing, maintaining and enhancing the greenspace asset base of Nelson City. From street gardens and playgrounds and esplanade parks and reserves, to hectares of sports fields, horticultural parks and ecologically significant natural reserves, Nelmac has played a central role ensuring Nelson locals and visitors enjoy extraordinary access to the high quality outdoor experiences.
