Cyburbia is a friendly big tent, where we share our experiences and thoughts about urban planning practice, the built environment, planning adjacent topics, and anything else that comes to mind. No ads, no spam, and it's free. It's easy to join!
That shot is of a glorified traffic island officially called Te Aro Park but locally known as pigeon park. It's where 'vagrants' hang out and lots of fights and stuff happen there on the weekends. It's also a popular spot to rest for shoppers on sunny days.
