Frank Kitts Park is a great spot for kids to run around and let off a bit of steam after or during a day's sightseeing. There's room to run and jump, places to climb and a brilliant slide which was really popular the day we were there. Nearby there are plenty of places to eat and drink and Te Papa... More

Heaps to do around this part of Wellington. Nice playground for the kids. Lots of shops on the waterfront. I've recently purchased an awesome double wool skin for my lazy boy at home, from the lovely lady who has one of the small container shops. I've also purchased a number of beautiful pieces of greenstone from the family run store... More

Excellent children's play area conveniently located with lovely harbourside views. There's enough to do for the littlies and bigger kids to wear them all out. The two slides (slippery dips) on the lighthouse are some of the biggest I've seen in a while!

I walked pass this park today and decided to stop and have a look around. It was a beautiful park and I imagine it would be a nice picnic place on a sunny day. It's had a big playground for children and also has some of The Wellington Writers Trail though it. It was raining when I stopped to have... More

They get to climb a giant lighthouse and slide to the bottom. There are small slides for the little ones, places to picnic and to watch the harbour life. There are lots of nearby restaurants and the wonderful Wellington Museum and Portrait Gallery nearby

A beautiful and interesting outdoor area to enjoy with something to keep kids active and engaged whilst parentys can watch all the passersby before moving onto the container shops

Frank Kitts Park is a delightful small park on Wellington Waterfront and can be part of a very pleasant walk around the harbour downtpwn. On a nice day it is nice to sit and observe the range of activities that can occur on the site and to enjoy the views of the harbour and cityscape immediately behind.

There is a great play area for kids. The main component looks like a lighthouse. There is a giant slide to go down from the top of it. Everything is free.

Awesome for kids aged up to 10-11 I'd say. Cool playground, lots of places for adults to sit in the sun and admire the view. Also good for picnics although beware of the birds
