Transformation planned for Auckland city waterfront park
Eke Panuku, Auckland Council’s urban regeneration agency, wants to know what you think about its proposal to upgrade Harbour Bridge Park in Westhaven.
Its planning to transform this popular waterfront destination, west of the harbour bridge, over the next few years to make it a place where more people can enjoy the views across the Waitematā Harbour and spend time with friends and whānau, as well as providing a key walking and cycling connection between Herne Bay and the city centre, connecting through the Westhaven Promenade.
The innovative design will make the most of the location by moving part of Curran Street away from the water’s edge, creating a spacious new waterfront promenade and park. This will make room for new seating, picnic and fishing spots, green space, lighting and improved stormwater treatment through rain gardens. The number of car parks will remain the same.
