Masonic Park

Whakahounga a te Papa Masonic

Masonic Park Upgrade

We’re giving Masonic Park a makeover to create an inviting place for people to stop by, dine, or pass through from the waterfront to our future civic precinct, Te Manawataki o Te Papa. Once complete, the area will include large green spaces with shade, shelter and covered walkways. 


Why are we doing this? 

Work is underway to revitalise our city centre so it becomes a place where people from near and far want to visit, learn, live, work and play.  

This includes creating a destination waterfront in the heart of our city with lots of activities in, on and around the water to complement our new civic precinct - Te Manawataki o Te Papa.   

The new civic precinct includes a new library and community hub, a civic whare (public meeting space), museum and exhibition gallery, and will be a drawcard for visitors from near and far, with so much to see and experience.     

Landscaping through Masonic Park will contribute to the vibrancy of our city centre and provide a vital connection through this area.
