Waitangi Park

Bordered by Oriental Parade, Cable Street and Lambton Harbour is Waitangi Park.

Developed in 2006, the park covers six-hectares of the Wellington waterfront. Along with a large grassed area the park features a skateboard park, playground and a re-created wetland.

The park itself sits on land which was once used by Maori tribes for foraging. It also wraps around the Chaffers Dock Apartments, built in the former post office and telegraph buildings. Next door to the park is the national museum and art gallery, Te Papa.

Getting There & Parking

Waitangi Park is hard to miss as a signature of the Wellington Waterfront. It’s easy to get to along the busy Cable Street. Barnett and Herd Street both offer spaces for parking although it’s always a good idea to carpool with your co-workers to make it that much easier.

Wellington’s public transport network, Metlink, is easy to use and there are a number of buses that run past Waitangi park. Just be sure to keep an eye on the website for any updates to services.
