The summer edition of Tō Tātou Pōneke – Our Wellington is packed full of fun ideas about how to enjoy our city in the upcoming warmer months.
Covering the period from 1 December to 31 March, this issue features fun stats about Wellington, including the city’s top wind gust, the number of restaurants and cafes, and how many rescues are performed annually by our lifeguards.
It also has the top playgrounds to visit – as voted by three Thorndon School pupils who visited all 107 Pōneke play areas in just six months!
We have tips on Christmas shopping in the capital, and how to care for our beaches this summer while out enjoying the city’s 98km of coastline.
Meet community volunteer Campbell Maclean, who has been hard at work for four decades planting over 2,500 native plants in the Town Belt section behind his home in Mount Cook.
