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

This issue celebrates Pōneke's full schedule of events, following 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.

Find out all the details about our Council-run events, including New Year’s Eve celebrations, plus Waitangi Day and Wellington Pacifika Festival. 

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. Find out more about the closure of Freyberg pool for summer maintenance and why the Town Hall team are celebrating a major milestone in its upgrade.

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

Check out the magazine as a PDF above, or a text-only version (which may be compatible with some screen readers).

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.
