park pride

Midland Park

When Midland Park came up for review, the council decided that a refresh was required including new lighting, drainage and widened access into the park.

Originally built in 1983 on the site of the former Midland Hotel in Lambton Quay, Midland Park has to withstand damaging salt carried in by Wellington’s notorious wind.

Resene and the Midland Park entry way structure

The removal of the existing steel canopy mounted lighting together with the enlargement of the Lambton Quay entry and the presence of corrosion resulted in the decision to repaint the existing curved structure. The original coating was stripped, then replaced with Resene Uracryl semi-gloss two pack acrylic urethane tinted to Resene Scarpa Flow (steel grey) from the Resene Engineered Coating Systems range to tie in with Wellington City Council finishes for street furniture and lighting poles used throughout the city. The acrylic canopy was removed during the painting process then replaced once the coating system was cured.

To minimise disruption the work was carried out over the quieter Christmas period, providing park users with a post Christmas pick me up when they returned from holiday to find their refreshed park waiting for them.
