Blockhouse Bay Welcomes Village Green Improvements
Compliments are flying following Whau Local Board’s efforts to improve Blockhouse Bay’s village green, which connects to the larger Gittos Domain.
The area was rundown with cracked footpaths, steps limiting access to Armanasco House where the Blockhouse Bay Historical Society is based, and a water fountain in a state of disrepair.
Now the damaged footpaths have been replaced, a ramp has taken the place of the steps, and less concrete means storm water can soak into the ground.
