New Zealand Tree Grower;Nov2006, Vol. 27 Issue 4, p27
The article provides information on the Waitangi Park located in Wellington, New Zealand. The Waitangi Park has replaced the desolate area previously known as Chafers Park. The Park is located next to Te Papa and the waterfront in Wellington. The park was designed by Megan Wraight using timber that came from Australia. It features extensive areas of ironbark boardwalks and other amenities. Developers of the Waitangi Park used ironbark because it is an enduring feature of the existing wharf. The ironbark used for the park is very dense and does not float.
