Post 1931 Marine Parade: The Beginning of Napier’s Playground (New)

Sponsored by: Resene

After the 1931 Hawke’s Bay Earthquake created an uplift of land on the Marine Parade foreshore, the Napier Borough Council and the Thirty Thousand Club began to create attractions on the reclaimed land.

Local Art Deco historian (and past Heritage officer at the Art Deco Trust) will explore the development of the Marine Parade, including the Art Deco touches in fitting with the rebuild of the central business district.

Buildings included are the sound shell, colonnade, skating rink, Napier Arch – and details of the Louis Hay, Art Deco masterpiece that never occurred.

Entry by donation.
