Hidden Shoreline Walk

Reclamation has played an important part in Nelson’s history, greatly altering the shoreline of the 1840s (shown on this map). Our busy port, impressive marina and expansive recreation areas all sit upon progressive infill. Early European settlers started reclamation in 1841 which continued over many years until eight hectares of land was reclaimed on either side of the Maitai River forming the Rutherford and Trafalgar Parks.
