Riverpark Reserve playground complete!

PlayFurniturre

The playground was completed in the middle of winter, when the park was very boggy, so we are still waiting for the official opening to happen which is now scheduled for Saturday 29 February. The increase in numbers of people coming to the playground has been really wonderful to see with families bringing picnics and other activities like volleyball to the park.

The basket swing has been a great hit with teens as well as younger children.

The flying fox isn’t as challenging as some would like but has been a great hit with the younger kids and the string has already had to be replaced once due to the high usage. We did have to ask for the seat to be raised early on when we realised that even intermediate-aged children were skimming the ground when using it.

The fitness stations are growing in popularity and even though our group is very disappointed that our name did not appear on the signage, we know that we played a major part in getting these here and the main thing is that we managed to get the funding and get them installed for the use of our community. Thanks again to the Lions Henderson-West Auckland for agreeing to help us with the application and to The Trusts Community Foundation for funding these.
