Frank Kitts Park, Wellington

(140+ reviews on the web)
Nature / Park
Go local at Frank Kitts Park, where you can listen to talented buskers, let the kids play, and relax along with other Wellingtonians. The park, named after the city's longest-serving mayor Frank Kitt, represents one of the first areas of the waterfront to be developed back in the late 1980s. Its design was heavily influenced by the Wellington 500 street car race held in the area at the time. The many eateries and cafes close by make it a perfect spot for a snack or meal, while a short walk beside the waterfront will lead you to an art gallery and food market. Use our Wellington holiday planner to add Frank Kitts Park and other attractions to your Wellington vacation plans.

  • Not a brilliant park but nice enough to sit and have a picnic... nice views from certain parts but be aware of it occasionally being used by alcoholics :/  more »
  • What a wonderful part of paradise in the heart of the city. Amazing views of the harbour, excellent play ground for children, attractive setting. Fresh air.  more »
  • A great open space to enjoy a walk around or sit to have lunch while looking at the city on one side or Wellington harbor on the other,  more »
