Kaiapoi Riverview Terraces, Boardwalk & Pontoons

Another Regeneration Project

The Kaiapoi Riverview Terraces and boardwalk will allow easy access to the riverside right in the middle of Kaiapoi's town centre. Nestled alongside the Kaiapoi River, the concrete terraces with built-in timber seating will be an attractive space to sit and enjoy the river view. A proposed floating pontoon will connect the terraces to the Kaiapoi wharf downriver.
