    Previous consultation with the community

    In July 2020 you told us what you’d like to see in your park. We heard the following from a good selection of the community:

    • this is one of our quieter neighbourhood playgrounds, but is still enjoyed by preteens
    • we need to keep a focus at this playground for preteens
    • there are a number of other playgrounds within a 2-kilometre radius that cater for toddlers through to 8 year olds
    • climbing and adventure is an important feature of the current equipment
    • some equipment for under 5s is desirable
    • seating would be a nice addition to the reserve
    • the Matai Community garden is an important component of the reserve
    • make better use of the green space by changing the location of the playground.
