Iron pipes that helped supply the North Shore with water more than 100 years ago, have been rediscovered during works in Killarney Park in Takapuna and will be kept in place for the public to view, Auckland Council announces. The pipes were found during site excavations to upgrade the lakeside pathway, seating and lookout, by the historic PumpHouse at Lake Pupuke. The space has been redesigned to include clear coverings, allowing people to see the pipes underneath. A sign featuring information on the history of the pipes will also be installed.
