It's all happening at the Campbell Free Kindergarten

One of the benefits of the new motorway tunnel under Victoria Park is the the restoration of the the old Campbell Free Kindergarten, Auckland's first kindergarten. A bit like the old Birdcage Tavern I blogged about previously here which now sits in it's original spot just across the road.

Having sat derelict under the motorway viaduct for decades it will now house the control room for the new tunnel as well as offering community facilities for the public. Restoration from scary looking old hunk to a gleaming piece of architectural heritage is well underway - amongst the chaos caused by the tunnel construction.
