Revamping Kotuku Park playground

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

In October the community voted on two designs for Kotuku park playground. During this stage we heard feedback that the equipment choices weren’t quite right, so we met with locals to fine-tune the designs and we ran a second round of voting. You can read more on the first voting stages at Round 1 information.

Votes closed on 21 December 2020 and showed that option 2 is the favoured design.

Option 2 includes a full swing set (two for toddlers, two for older kids), a pod swing, module with climbing net and slide, cube climbing nets and rock-climbing wall, slatted barrel for exploring, see-saw and wooden boat, alongside natural seating and planting.

Installation will be completed by June 2021 and we will update the community on our Facebook page when construction is beginning, but reassured it will be after the January school holidays.
