Frank Kitts Park plays an important role in the city as a gathering place and as a site for waterfront events.
The park was completed in the 1980s, with a design aimed at allowing spectators to safely watch the annual waterfront street car race that ran in the city at the time.
The Council is proposing to redevelop the park, re-orienting its focus towards the harbour and integrating a long-planned Chinese Garden. The park will retain large areas of open lawn, along with a much improved children’s play area.
The redeveloped park will support a variety of uses, from events and walking and relaxing, to play, while also creating a more diverse and attractive harbourfront space.
Redeveloping Frank Kitts Park is part of a bigger plan to redevelop the Wellington waterfront. We are currently seeking public input on the proposed Waterfront Development Plan 2015-18.
