Carrara Park gets arty...
Carrara Park is one of Newtown’s hidden gems, sitting between Daniell and Regent Sts. With a great adventure playground, plenty of green space, and beautiful trees (which turn 21 this year!), the park is now home to an amazing new mural celebrating Newtown!
The mural is a joint effort between Eastern Suburb Youth Trust, Wellington City Council and Newtown School, in an effort to combat tagging and celebrate the spirit of our neighbourhood. Since August this year, a small enthusiastic group of 10 and 11 year olds of Newtown School have been meeting every Wednesday with local artist Kiri Hiha to think about where they live and create a design that they feel captures what Newtown is about: “a nice, beautiful place where people can live together”.
Thinking about where to have that picnic over summer? Head to Cararra Park and check out what our local kids think of Newtown.
