Civic Square


Points of Interest

Wellington's Civic Square is a popular meeting place with locals and visitors alike. The Square's paved area and raised steps form an amphitheatre like effect and is often used for public events, but it is also a great place for a picnic, or simply to rest and get some sunshine.

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.
