Frank Kitts Park, Wellington
(4.1/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Often has the Telecom Christmas Tree and special events are staged down here with a large tent put up and musicians at Christmas time. Very relaxing and so close to the city. 
  • There is usually something happening in this park all the time... loads of activities to do and if you're lucky maybe a concert or two on. 
  • Stones throw from the CBD, there's a kids play area, great views of the harbour, and it is a close proximity to surrounding shops, bars and cafe's. Often filled with families and locals, even more so ...  more »

  • Awesome place to spend family time. Only draw back - kids change room needs to be near by :)
  • Friendly place with Great views and a fantastic playground for children. Fantastic place for Pokemon Go
  • Frank Kitts park is rad, heaps of space for families to play and boot campers to train. Also one of the hottest spots for Pok√©mon Go players in Wellington
