Mount Vernon Park is owned and administered by the Port Hills Park Trust Board to conserve and enhance the natural environment and provide opportunity for public recreation. The board is made up of three trustees appointed from the community and one each appointed by the local Member of Parliament, Lincoln University, the Mayor of Christchurch and the Christchurch Civic Trust.


Day to day management of the park is delegated to the Mount Vernon Management Committee.The board and management committee meet jointly about every six weeks.
