Porirua Park


Situated in a natural amphitheater, Porirua Park forms one of Wellington’s best sports grounds yet it remains under utilised. Porirua City Council approached Stephenson & Turner to design a complex that would cater for all but the highest levels of outdoor sports. A 1,900 seat gently curving covered stand, snuggled against the existing embankment, forms the centre piece of the design. Also included is floodlighting, capable of live television broadcasts, and ancillary facilities including public toilets and changing rooms.
