This report contains a community and market analysis that identifies key features of the Central and Western area, highlights consequences for recreation and presents opportunities and markets that are currently available to Recreation Wellington.

The analysis uses secondary research, including data from a range of national, city-wide and local sources including the Census, Department of Labour Workplace information, Quality of Life information, Community Housing, Aquatics Facility Plan, Aquatic Facilities Partnerships with Schools report, secondary school sport data.
