My Esplanade

We’ve launched #MyEsplanade to find out what you love about the Victoria Esplanade. The campaign will help guide future plans for one of our city’s most treasured parks.

It’s really quite simple.

We want you to share photos and videos of what you love most about the Esplanade on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter with #MyEsplanade. Autumn is a beautiful time of year to take photos and video, but we’d also love it if you shared your old photos too.

The Manawatū Heritage team will be collecting the material received throughout the campaign and preserving it on the Manawatū Heritage website. If you have a hardcopy photo you’d like to share, pop into the City Library and see the team who are based on the second floor.

To launch the campaign, we have something very special planned for the school holidays.

We’re working with Palmy Rocks to hide special edition Easter rocks throughout the Esplanade over Easter weekend. We want you to take a photo of yourself with one of our extra special rocks at your favorite Esplanade spot and share it with #MyEsplanade. No stress if you can’t find a rock – upload a photo of yourself at your favourite spot anyway. Either way you’ll go in the draw to win exciting spot prizes. Be sure to re-hide the rocks so other people can enjoy them too.
