Transcript of Te Whanganui A Tara
By Rita Angus Island Bay
By Rita Angus The Island Bay Festival happens once a year in February. It is down The Esplanade and goes into Shorland Park and up Reef Street. At the festival small stall line the street and street performers do their best tricks. Down the other end of island bay racers prepare their carts for the Ribble Street Races. The racers compete for their chance to take home a trophy. At the beach boats ferry people across to the island and then everyone races back to the mainland Environment Island Bay's beach was turned into a wildlife reserve in August 2008 and covers 854 hectares of water. It was chosen as an ideal place for a reserve because 3 currents meet at Island Bay Beach which brings together hot cold and warm water into a small place bringing in lots of different flora and fauna. The bush behind Ribble street was turned into a wild life reserve shortly after. The Island Bay marine education centre is situated in nearly the exact centre of the reserve. It is a small building that used to be a boatshed but was fixed up in early 2007. The Island Bay reserve has built up with wildlife and is a hotspot for diving. One diving company operates in Island Bay, Island Bay Divers. Island Bay divers tak Trips into the Reserve Daily. Cost To enjoy Island Bay You do not need a lot or any money at all. On every second Sunday the Island Bay Marine Education centre is open. Down at the beach there is two wharfs that are great fun to jump off. Down the road towards the shops sit 4-5 nice cafes and resturaunts. They are pretty cheap and a few of them have won awards. If you keep walking past the shops and towards Wakefield Park You will come across a skate park.
The skate park has a half pipe 2 bowls and 3 flats. They are great fun to do on a nice day. Future Possibilties I think that island bay has quite a lot of future possibilties. Lately there has been a lot of houses being built and renovated. about a two and a half months ago wakefield park was re-done with astro turf.
