Petes Landing

December 2nd, 2014 | Posted by PVI in Public Space - (0 Comments)

Risen from the Rubble – Pete’s Landing

At Pete’s Landing at 10 am on Thursday 4 September, Peterborough villagers will welcome new community initiatives and commemorate the 4th anniversary of the first quake.

A new flag has been painted by muralist Pops and will be flown, magazine supply refreshed, local school children will read their stories, and, will bring the eels they‘ve crafted for installation. Pop along to welcome them, listen to them read from the boat, have a chat, a coffee from The Flying Cup cart, or, a cupper in the library after.

Pete's Boat arrives up the river

Located out in the street in front of the Peterborough Library, Pete’s Landing is a community initiative born out of the earthquakes, the perfect place to reflect and remember. All are welcome.

The Council constructed the platform and the community designed and developed this transitional parklet as a gathering place, a demonstration of more people friendly streetscapes (rather than just being vehicle dominated places), and with informal reference to the nature & culture of our place. The community developed its landing theme last spring, giving it a name, building the crates recycled timber, the magazine lockers, roping on the tyres planted with Pohuehue – that get watered by locals from the fab Eel Tap – and, installing the boa after it was rowed up the Ōtākaro Avon from the sea to the traditional upstream limit and then welcomed in a noisy procession along Peterborough Street. Pete’s Landing shows the role of water in the history of the area, eels drape and ducks come and go. It’s a great place to park your bike, lounge in the boat, get a magazine from a locker, chat with friends and enjoy a coffee.
