Neighborhood: West Coast
Overview

The Wynyard Quarter is being revamped and as a part of this endeavor, the Silo Park was built. It is raised on a former sand mining area that was used by McCallum Brothers (sand suppliers). After they vacated this space, it was transformed into a charming green respite, namely, the Silo Park. Against the backdrop of the panoramic Auckland waterfront, stands the huge Silo, a symbolic representation of the quarter's industrial heritage. Apart from that, it also features a sculpture, the Wind Tree by Michio Ihara (a Japanese artist). Silo park hosts concerts and performances on certain days. However, highlight of the place is outdoor movie screen, that shows movies regularly. For more details, call ahead.
