  • A nice concrete jungle surrounded by the art galleries, town hall, wellington city council, public library, and other offices. A great place to sit outside and have fresh air during lunch time. Also great and safe at night times. Unfortunately, not a lot of plants, and trees around. Often become the place where people celebrate & welcome returning athletes home.
  • Easily one of the top 5 places to see in Wellington on the way to Te Papa (for example) or incorporate as part of a city walk. Ive dropped one star as its a concrete jungle. Limited food options within the square - need to go to the adjoining streets for that... nice place to sit - a lot of locals seem to sit here at lunchtime
  • Indeed a nice place with great views. Safe at night and a good place for tourists to explore. It's a bridge between the city and the waterfront.
  • Great place on the way to the library coming from the waterfront. Good for breaks in the city for office workers and "tired of walking" tourists
  • Wonderfully architecturally engineered space, great place to come on a sunny day off in the city. Feed pidgins, play some foot ball, or just people watching. Free WiFi from to local art gallery too.
