“A nice place to rest your feet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2014

Having visited the I-site, I left the place through the "back door" and entered a square between the City Gallery and the Town Hall. Interesting sculptures, made out of what looked like old crates from the harbour, were situated on a sort of foot bridge - worth seeing!

The Frank Kitts park is situated right on the other side of the bridge - the number of trees is limited and the park is quite narrow so the main attraction (to me) was the splendid view of the harbour and a peaceful atmosphere which I found surprising this close to the bustling city.

“Wonderful spot down by the waterfront”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2014

This is a great place, especially in fine weather, to spend time wandering around. There are play grounds for children and things to hire to get out on the water. And you can get a thing like a bike for two to peddle around. Icecreams and coffees for sale. The views of the harbour are fabulous. It is right by downtown Wellington. And its free. Lots of people go there so you can just watch people walking and biking by for some free entertainment.

“Friends with kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

When friends with kids visit we go here. The park is so vast that you can visit everyday for a week and go to a different part of the park and greater surroundings and never be bored.
