Celebrate the new pop-up park on Friday 4 December

Pop-up park creates space for greater engagement.

We're reimagining Knights Road with you to create a safer and more people-friendly pathway and connection to Lower Hutt's CBD. The first trial to be created is a pop-up park on the Birch Street reserve, right opposite Waterloo Station.

The pop-up park is a response to feedback through our engagements with community. We heard that people wanted a physical site to stay informed about the project, a more attractive journey and additional seating. The design has been inspired from this community feedback and created from recycled materials by local schools and artists.

We'll be celebrating at the pop-up park on Friday 4 December* from 12pm to 6pm. There will be activities, music and an opportunity to see what a temporary pathway trial along Knights Road might look like.

You're invited to stop by on your way home from school, work or while out and about to meet the team and enjoy the new space. The pop-up park is there for all the community, community members and groups are invited to use the space for their celebrations over the festive season. Get in touch if you'd like to find out more.

*If raining the event will be postponed to Friday 11 December
