Silo Park is a unique, welcoming communal space by the waterfront in downtown Auckland.
Close to the Fish Market, the strip of eateries in Wynyard Quarter and the water, Auckland's uniquely created industrial heritage space is also home to special cinematic, music and community events every Friday and Saturday.
The Silo Park Cinema and Night Markets are an excellent way to spend summer Friday evenings, and the Silo Sessions bring fantastic free music and entertainment. Check the website for upcoming events.
Love this place, especially the weekend summer markets- Saturday/Sunday, 12pm-6pm. Digging through the piles of vintage clothing, accessories, and downright oddities is both fun and rewarding- there's everything from cheap art prints to sunglasses. The food stalls right next door are also irresistible and there are often free Swing dancing lessons in front of them, it's just all very cute.
Silo Park hoop is a favourite haunt for many inner city (basket)b ballers who get together and play into the early hours. Arriving just before midnight the group of youth come from inner city and surrounds come to hang out at the hoop. The park is at the inner edge of the Wynyard quarter. The Waitemate harbour running along the foreshore, the area originally came to life in 2011 when the World Cup was hosted here. The restaurant strip is a well thought out the drawbridge extension is a walkway through to the waterfront marina where the restaurants and bars continue to the Downtown and Harbour area. It is a great fun area for the whole family. The tuk tuk drivers too, can be found waiting for takers in the Downtown square,.The Information Centre, Harbour ticket offices and Naked and Mana buses all can be found along from Silo Park on Quay Street. Silo Park not to be confused with the theatre of the same name, is a great late night entertainment area, the citylink buses run every 10 minut to Silo Park and stop conveniently direclty behind the hoop, yet another reason it is the place to go to for many because of its ease of access. Popular with apartment dwellers and tourists the area has evolved into a community hub someting for everyone.
