    End of the Americas cup parade and what an atmosphere. Sheltered and perfect place to host an outdoor event. The entrance way to many attractions and a great meeting place.  more »

  • 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
  • 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.
  • Good local hangout on a sunny day. Excellent views of Wellington from here. A must for tourists.
  • A good public event center. Easily accessible from all directions on foot. Many formal and informal events take place here.
  • Majestic view. Must visit. Excellent hangout place in a sunny day.
