Westland Industrial Heritage Park is a working museum with a variety of displays and ongoing projects. The dedicated volunteers' passion for restoring Westland's industrial past to running condition for public display has resulted in the park becoming a vibrant and dynamic family tourist attraction.
The Westland Industrial Heritage Park (the Park) was started by a group of mature (Old) men who loved big engines and the like (toys) and wanted to play with the toys and preserve some of the history of Westland at the same time.  Since those beginnings the Park has developed and changed. It has become a place where all ages can see and touch and learn about the history of the region.
