Under the Pier. New Brighton.
The New Brighton Pier is a great place for strolling, fishing or watching the surfers. Nearby is the New Brighton Library, children's play areas, a paddling pool, shops and cafes. The original New Brighton Pier, built in 1894, stood on the same site as the present pier. When the original pier was threatened with demolition in 1963 a group of residents formed the Pier and Foreshore Society to try to save it. They were unsuccessful and the pier was demolished in 1964. On 1 November 1997, the new pier was officially opened. It was the culmination of more than 30 years work by the Pier and Foreshore Society.
