Urban Park

Let the kids run wild, rent a surrey or bike, hang out on a sunny day, make a picnic by the water with a great cityscape view!

The anchor from the Interisland Ferry, Wahine, is on display here - it was lost in a hurricane in Wellington in 1968. The Park... More

I lived in Wellington during the 1960s and this area was generally under utilised and getting run down. What has been done with it is incredible.

Not a brilliant park but nice enough to sit and have a picnic... nice views from certain parts but be aware of it occasionally being used by alcoholics :/

A great open space to enjoy a walk around or sit to have lunch while looking at the city on one side or Wellington harbor on the other,

Frank Kitts Park is a great spot for kids to run around and let off a bit of steam after or during a day's sightseeing. There's room to run and jump, places to climb and a brilliant slide which was really popular the day we were there. Nearby there are plenty of places to eat and drink and Te Papa... More
