Our mission: To grow the sport of traditional archery in Nelson and New Zealand
Archery Park is a Social Business: We sell archery adventures, guided by experienced archers and certified archery coaches. We use the money to fund the 3D forest archery range targets, track and field maintenance and staff. This allows us to offer a club structure for local families at an affordable rate. We also put a lot of effort into the development of the sport in Nelson and New Zealand, and with our Robin Hood Scheme we make it accessible to people that couldn’t otherwise pay for it.
We love nature and are very eco-friendly. We re-use all our arrows, repair what we can and try to use natural materials where possible. We are hosted on green servers and our brochures are printed on recycled paper. We stroll through our native bush on foot, so no nasty exhaust fumes there. And we look after the land, read about our conservation efforts here.
Under our Robin Hood Scheme we provide special rates to groups, services and businesses that have social or health oriented goals. We also love to support fundraising activities, after all, taking it from the rich and giving it to the poor is part of our heritage. Get in touch with us if this is of interest to you! So far we have supported the local CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service), the Big Brother Big Sister network and the Valley to View fundraiser. Read more here.
