Drag, Thrust, Lift, Fluidity: The Christchurch lowlands framed by the Southern Alps provide both the contextual setting and the design cues for a unique and green southern landscape at Dakota Park. The predominant landscape moves consist of subtle landform changes and drifts of native vegetation. These accompany an urban design structure formed by pedestrian ways that provide opportunities to link to adjacent reserves and open spaces. In addition to this a network of strategic planting and landform treatments over flows into Memorial Ave and Spitfire Park providing wider connections and an overall structure for a distinctive airport landscape.
