Mount Maunganui’s urban space, Te Papa o Ngā Manu Porotakataka, at 123-141 Maunganui Road, provides a new open space for everyone to enjoy.
The new urban space is in the heart of Mount Maunganui’s city centre. The mix of hard surfaces, lawn and planting provides a flexible area for events and activities all year round. The space includes an interactive water feature, native trees to provide shade and grass areas to play and relax.
The space is designed for people to enjoy. It creates a greater sense of belonging for our community by encouraging social interaction through a shared space to rest and play. The new space will support the growing visitor and residential population by inviting people to stay longer in the Mount city centre, with local businesses enjoying the economic benefits through increased foot traffic.
