Description: On this walking tour we will visit well-known and not so well-known places in the central city including Wellington Botanical Gardens, Wellington waterfront, and some iconic, pocket and hidden city parks. We’ll discuss how well these places provide ecosystem services and meet peoples’ needs. Does the central city support Wellington’s claim to be a biophilic city?
