Whairepo Lagoon is an open public area at the centre of Wellington, New Zealand. It is a small lagoon filled with sea water and connected to Wellington Harbour through a narrow channel. It is surrounded by The Boat Shed, City-to-Sea bridge, and the Wellington Rowing, Star Boating Club, and Te Raukura buildings.

On 17 December 2015 the lagoon was officially named Whairepo Lagoon, as it previously had no official name.[1] The lagoon was previously referred to as Frank Kitts Lagoon, Frank Kitts Park Lagoon, The Lagoon and Aotea Lagoon.
