Enhancing a relaxed beachside setting while protecting the natural coastal environment was the focus of Chow:Hill’s landscape design during the upgrade of Auckland’s Eastern Beach Boardwalk.

Offering coastal views of the Hauraki Gulf, family-friendly beach access, and summer shade under pohutukawa trees, Auckland’s Eastern Beach boardwalk is a popular destination for locals and visitors to New Zealand’s largest city.

Chow:Hill’s design of the Auckland Council asset focused on providing the city’s urban population with an enhanced beachside promenade, while protecting the coastal edge.

Taking into account the complexity of designing and building on the coastal edge, Chow:Hill's design of the upgraded pathway, created in collaboration with Auckland Parks, uses hardwood decking to provide a wide, safe walkway, easily accessible for people of all ages, pushchairs and wheelchairs.  

Providing protection against the tides and environmental elements, the boardwalk ensures greater ecological preservation of the already popular coastal amenity.
