The Kāpiti Community
Whale Song and the central park that will surround it are the result of an extended period of research, consultation, and engagement throughout the Kāpiti district and beyond.
Focussed on urban wellbeing, greenspace philosophy, transportation hub and retail proximity. It will also build business investment and resilience, along with improving community connection.
The Kāpiti Coast’s natural setting and conservation history feature Queen Elizabeth Park, Ngā Manu Nature Reserve, Akatarawa and Tararua Forest Parks, Whareroa Farm, the Kāpiti Marine Reserve which links the iconic Kāpiti Island Nature Reserve, and the Waikanae Scientific Estuary to form a rare and special part of New Zealand. Whale song will be the wayfinder to these Kāpiti and New Zealand treasures.
