What a clever and interesting space this community have along their waterfront. There is a broad walking area that has art installations every few meters. From water features to whale bone sculptures it’s constantly changing. Lovely space to wander along or bring the children.

Lots to see along the waterfront walk. Statues, water sculptures, a viewing platform to watch the surf and a great place for kiddies to learn road rules and to ride.

Yes you can. It’s about 10 minutes to walk to town centre or you can walk the other direction and walk to Ahuriri beach front, for cafes, and bars.
