Urban Oasis

The temporary Urban Oasis in Market Street is a contemporary space with bean bags, market umbrellas, turf and free Wi-Fi. It is part of project ‘City Vision: small city, BIG ideas’, which looks at how Napier’s central city and Ahuriri work, what makes it hum, how people experience it.

We’ve introduced this experimental space to test how we can keep people in the CBD longer. It’s likely that over time Urban Oasis will change and adapt as we learn more about what people want and also to seasonal conditions.

We want to know what the needs and wants of Napier’s locals and visitors are. Tell us what you think of the space and share your ideas about how to make City Vision a reality.

This is an excellent idea. It makes the area much more friendly whereas before it was a dark dismal area. Well done.

Super idea. So great to get general population feedback. Where we can share our ideas. Someone keeps stealing the chalk though! How come feedback is closed on the Talk to us Napier site already?! Surely this could be ongoing. We need to inject some culture and community as well as energy into Napier city. Young people are soooo bored here. Thanks!

Wonderful idea. So lovely to have shady space to rest. Musicians seem to love the space too! Be great to have this as on going feature and have some live entertainment there on spring/summer/autumn evenings to inject some culture into the nightlife of Napier city. Thanks I sat there today with my baby girl.

what a fabulous place. Good idea for visitors to be able to have free wifi while having a comfortable seat. Wonderful.

This is a great space to hang out. I just sat under the umbrella and kicked my shoes off and enjoyed a juice! Would recommend anyone to go down and enjoy this shady spot. Some music would be great too.

Love the new Urban Oasis. Hope it remains a permanent fixture in our city as seating in the CBD is much needed. Excellent idea putting umbrellas up too. Keep up the great work NCC!
