Thanks to my good friend Kent Lundberg in Auckland for sending through these photos of a cool little pop up park recently unveiled in the City of Sail’s CBD.  Griffiths Gardens, is a temporary respite from the dust and disruption of Auckland’s ambitious City Rail Link project, providing an “inner-city back yard for CBD residents, workers and visitors.”

“As well as seating, picnic tables and play equipment there will be a garden shed for gardening tools and bike repair gear.”

Indeed a well programmed space packing in the amenities for a variety of users, including those city slickers running low on cell phone power:
