  • This place seems to be a little unplanned and just happened but it is a square and a square is better than no square but it could be better. It does have toilets.  more »

  • Beautiful square in the city surrounded by library, council and gallery. Love to have a lunch break here. Some sand bags here to lie on.
  • It's a good place to relax and eat lunch
  • 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.
