Victoria on the River
Another paradigm shift in Hamilton. At last, a well-planned and well executed connection has been established between the CBD and the river that runs through the city and was the reason for its foundation. The park’s siting and shaping, its generous scale and high-level of amenity have immediately rendered it a valuable civic asset. The design entices people to enter and encourages them to linger. Part viewing platform, part piazza, Victoria on the River is a further example of highly successful public urban space in regional New Zealand.
