Founders Heritage Park is a replica historic village of Nelson’s early days (circa 1880-1930) featuring heritage displays, railway, cafe and working artisans.
Located on the outskirts of Nelson city, the park is filled with character streets and attractive gardens across 5ha of land. It hosts weekly farmers markets, regular craft and beer festivals, antique and retro shows and many annual community events. There is ample off-road parking including space suitable for coaches.
Exciting arts and crafts made on-site are available at our reception area – The Windmill Founders Store – open 7 days – 10am to 4.30pm
Founders Heritage Park is a multi-faceted and flexible venue with five unique and very different spaces. Founders Heritage Park is suitable for public events, conferences, board meetings, weddings and other special celebrations, workshops, concerts and theatre performances.
The Founders Park team is happy to recommend professionals that will enhance the Founders magic: lighting, sound equipment, staging, theming, entertainment or food trucks. Catering is also available via the on-site café and bar.
