Have your say and help shape the Takapuna Town Square

Takapuna’s new town square will be a place where the community can come together to meet and attend public gatherings.

It will provide:

  • a new people-friendly space
  • more direct walkways between the town centre and Takapuna Beach.

About the concept design

The concept design for the town square has been informed by previous engagement with the community over several years.

The development and programming of the temporary public space at 38 Hurstmere Road in Takapuna over the past year has also allowed us to develop a further understanding of what locals would like to see in the town square, exploring themes around:

  • shelter
  • play
  • performance
  • cycling
  • environmental issues.

As a result, the design includes:

  • spaces for people to sit and play in the sun or shade
  • a water feature
  • an outdoor dining area.

A potential location for the Anzac Memorial has also been identified in the design. This will need further input into how it could be relocated and integrated into the design of the town square. This will need further input from certain groups including returned services, and consideration given to how it could be relocated and integrated into the design of the town square.

Public events in the town square

The design can accommodate a variety of public events, including concerts and a market with over 80 stalls.

Temporary staging can be installed in the centre of the square for public performances and events.

The water feature can also be used as a temporary stage.

More information

Further information about how a market or event layout could work can be found in the Concept Design Report.
