Naomi & Bill Kirk Park, in Mangere Bridge will be transformed into an Enchanted Garden with a magical display of 500 fluorescent flowers. The mystical sound of handpans by Alive Metal reverberate as viewers wander through a field of flowers filled with vibrantly coloured, unique blooms. Visitors will be able to grab a bite to eat from the food trucks, relax on the beanbags and as the sun sets, watch the flowers come to life and light up the night.
Featuring Inflorescence, a collaborative light-based installation showcasing the potential of plastic as a material for making art. Over 1,000 plastic bottles have been meticulously spliced together by a collective of artists, creating an otherworldly environment that is industrial yet natural.
A free, zero-waste event, suitable for all ages. Wheelchair friendly. Fun for the whole family.
Generously supported by Mangere Bridge Business Association, Auckland Council and EcoMatters.
Date TBC (aiming for May 2022)

Inspired by Wisteria, which is best defined as a breathtaking but aggressive vine that is likely to steal the beauty. An enchanted vine of fluorescent flowers will transform a central city lane as mesmerizing cascades of luscious purple-violet flowers bring the natural world front and center into the urban environment.
