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.
