FIND THESE STEPS – At the top of Park Street, Thorndon.
The steps – there they are at the top of Park Street beside the lamppost – seen from near the Wellington Urban Motorway.
According to Ms Irvine-Smith, the street is named for an assistant to Captain William Mein Smith, the Chief Surveyor for the Wellington Company. Park arrived on the Cuba with Smith in January, 1840. We know Captain Smith’s first name but apparently not Mr Park’s.
This one was determined to keep a step ahead of me on the way up.
Off to one side the city has left us a little park with bench and an awesome expanse of trees and bush.
The Reserve is at the top of the stairs.
I can’t find any information about this fountain with a woman and what appears to be cherubs.
