Karangahape Rocks

“I made a rocky seaside of water and rocks, with people sitting beside them, for the people who use this park”
Said Greer Twiss about hisĀ  sculptureĀ  in Pigeon Park at the corner of Karangahape Road and Symonds Street.
The work was commissioned by the Auckland City Council and installed in 1968.
