Make a Space at Open Streets Wellington - Te Ara Tapere ki Pōneke

Wellington will have 1.4km of new possibilities on Sunday 28 October - that's about a 25 minute walk through the central city

Take this opportunity to experience our city in new ways. Te Ara Tapere ki Pōneke, which means pathway of fun and community in Wellington, is a free event for everyone. Join Living Streets to "Make a Space" on Hunter and Victoria Street corner repurposing our public space in new ways. Your imagination is the only limit! Irresistable right

Living Streets will have some props for you to arrange and Make a Space - bring your own street making ideas and any supporting materials.

People of all ages and abilities can take over the streets and walk, play, ride, roll and walk some more in places where it's not usually possible. There's no official start or finish - you travel the route in either direction or join at any point.

Community groups and local businesses will be running activities that anyone can have a go at. Some of these will be at our activity hubs and you'll find other things to try along the way. Have a go at saying hello in te reo Māori or Arabic, outdoors yoga, a kids' scooter obstacle course, or making your own reusable bag.

Open Streets events are held regularly in other cities around the world. Here in Wellington, we're giving it a go for the second time in the central city - remember Living Streets and Greater Wellington organised the first event way back in 2013!

The Open Streets 1.4km route is from Hunter, Victoria and Taranaki  Streets all the way to Jessie Street.
