Summer edition

The summer edition of Our Wellington – Tō Tātou Pōneke covers the period from 1 December 2022 to 31 March 2023.

This issue celebrates Pōneke's full schedule of events, follow Covid-19 disruptions over the past couple of years, with Gardens Magic back in full swing. There's something for everyone this summer, so pack up the kids, bring the sunscreen, and celebrate with the whānau.

Inside Tō Tātou Pōneke, we share how the Council is breathing new life into unconventional spaces, where creative communities and renters are benefiting from rethinking how we use our places.

Read about our full year of completed play area upgrades for you to enjoy with the kids this summer, and learn the latest on Frank Kitts Park. Read all about the closure of Freyberg pool for summer maintenance and why the Town Hall team are celebrating a major milestone in its upgrade.

Find out what's on in the city this summer and how to keep waste to a minimum when you're heading out to events.

The magazine also has updates on initiatives happening under the Pōneke Promise, our commitment to make our city a safer, more vibrant, welcoming place to be. And, of course, it features details of our new Mayor and Councillors, as well as upcoming funding opportunities.
