Development Type:

The Kaiapoi River provides a central spine of open space within the Kaiapoi township and is used by a range of recreationalists as well as being valued ecologically. We were engaged by the Waimakariri District Council to provide a landscape plan for a 3.5km stretch of the river addressing the enhancement of existing features and introducing new elements that complemented the nautical theme throughout the township. A pathway was implemented on both sides of the river’s edge, including points of interest along its length with linkages to existing reserves and adjacent public spaces.
