This waterfront was created from natural beach accretion plus filled in with rubble after the 1931 earthquake. It stretches from the National Aquarium to the Gilray Fountain. The area was significantly enhanced thanks to the design of Paris Magdalinos Architects. Now included are walking and cycling paths. The former Marineland – originally a marine mammal park – was converted into a skate park (Bay Skate). Plus there are artworks representing Māori mythology such as this whalebone sculpture by Jacob Scott.
