Mahara library

“Last week we extended our pop up park [artificial grass patch] in Mahara Place, Waikanae, and added a second one down Mahara laneway. Because these spots are proving popular we’re going to continue the concept through to the Waikanae Library alcove in Mahara Place. By opening up the doors to the Library and with the use of colour and vertical planting, we’ll create a vibrant and inviting space for people to socialise, or just rest and relax. This temporary installation will happen over the next couple of weeks so keep an [eye] out, and make use of it once it’s in place.”
