I guess it's safe to say that the bridge is more like an art exhibit than a bridge. It's pretty cool to see as you're heading somewhere else but wouldn't make a huge point of going just to see the bridge.

On a nice day this a great spot for lunch... wicked views of the harbour and city. A short walk up from Civic Square. Keep an eye out for the Rays swimming around in the lagoon below

The City to Sea Bridge is a interesting bridge to cross over a busy road.. Full with different Art/Sculptures Lovely spots to sit and relax on a sunny day with views over to the Lagoon by the Boat Shed.

Interesting art installation connecting the City Hall and Michael Fowler Centre to the Wellington waterfront, showing some wear due to the elements. Lovely little nooks and crannies that people like to sit in and shelter from the elements

Just stumbled upon this bridge but very cool and interesting. Make sure you look at things around you not just walk straight over. Looks like a place the locals go

Very unusual bridge right on the waterfront and is a bridge from land to sea Very different in design not something you would expect to see in the middle of the waterfront well worth a vist

This bridge is very artistic and is in constant daily use so has become part of the city scape. Very interesting and if you are strolling around Wellington you will definitely come across it.

This must be one of Wellington's favourite spots. This immensely photogenic bridge, with its excellent art installations by Para Matchit and others, is an abiding symbol of the city's creative heart. Watch kids diving into the lagoon from the steps or just watch out over the harbour in the hope of spotting an orca. Just a short step to the... More

Located along the waterfront the bridge is right next to frank kitts park. I would say that it's definitely good to go check it out because I would call it a strange piece of architecture that gives character to the city of wellington.
