Newtown Park is used mostly for soccer, and cricket ground the Basin Reserve also lies within Newtown boundaries. The suburb used to have Athletic Park for rugby, but that has been demolished and replaced with a retirement village. It was famously the site of a major clash between protesters and police during the 1981 Springbok Tour.
MacAlister Park is situated between Adelaide Road and Finnimore Street, only a 1-minute walk from the public parking area. It is home to many of Wellington’s Football and Cricket matches and has all expected amenities that come with it: showers, changing rooms and professionally kept pitches. When there isn’t a game on to watch, it is a great space to take the dogs for a runaround or throw a frisbee with the kids.
Woof Woof Ruff (Dog Park) is a fully-fenced park and perfect place to take your pup out or let off the leash to expend some of the built-up energy that city dogs have. Double gates for safe entry and exit, and a tap and bowl for drinks. Lots of space to run around, and some shrubs down the end for snuffling in.It is a lovely environment for dogs to socialise with others. Most dogs are off leash, and everyone is very friendly. The perfect park for you and your canine companion!
