The Civic Square is home to Wellington's major buildings including the Wellington City Library and City Gallery Wellington. It's also the location for the i-Site visitor information centre and within short walking distance to Capital E, The Michael Fowler Centre and popular tourist areas such as Courtenay Place and Cuba Street.
A number of sculptures surround the Civic Square including Capital and Prow by Matt Pine and a globe of interwoven silver ferns. The square is also home to the City to the Sea Bridge, which connects Civic Square with Wellington`s waterfront. The bridge has many wooden sculptures created by Māori artist Para Matchitt.
