Kōrero: City parks and green spaces

Wellington, 1841

Wellington, 1841

It was easy to provide green spaces in colonial settlements like Wellington, where land such as the wooded Te Ahumairangi Hill (Tinakori Hill), left, could be set aside as a town belt in the town plan. New settlements also had plenty of ‘unofficial’ green spaces, within the town boundaries or close by.
