The way water is supposed to taste

A natural artesian spring runs half the length of the Hutt Valley. This sculpture marks a point where people can collect pure water.

Te Puna Wai Ora - Spring of Life

Te Puna Wai Ora was designed by the highly regarded New Zealand artist Louise Purvis and symbolises a water oasis - a place of rest, refreshment and exploration. 

The Sculpture also serves a practical purpose with the taps and drinking fountain incorporated into the design supply pure untreated artesian water.

Te Puna Wai Ora is on the corner of Buick Street and Jackson Street, Petone.  It's a great starting point to refill your water bottle before making your way down historic, funky, Jackson Street.
