Wellington Park(ing) Day 5 March - Take a walk on the green side

Join us on lower Cuba Street, Wellington and take a walk on the green side! Living Streets will be celebrating all the walking stars out there by repurposing car park space and letting you take your seat on the throne of walking goodness! Sounds like fun right

 

We are shamelessly taking ideas from many places, not least our President Andy Smith and his Auckland red carpet activities, and Australia's David Engwicht with traffic taming installations. But with a Wellington twist we hope you will enjoy

See you there from 8am - 5pm Friday 5 March.
