Overview

This splendid open space, used regularly for recreation and entertainment, is a tribute to the city's town planners, architects and artists. Combining terracotta tiles, trees and water features and bounded by interesting places such as the City to Sea Bridge, the City Gallery, and Central Library it is a natural draw card for visitors. Look out for the suspended spherical fern sculpture by Neil Dawson and the wonderful nikau palms by Ian Athfield. Amid the sculptures and waterfalls there are of course places to quietly sit and eat lunch.
