Takapuna playground build has begun!

One wet Thursday morning we turned the sod on Takapuna's new world-class playground project at Takapuna Beach Reserve.

Jackie Kerridge and Chris Reeve, the couple who have donated generously to make this playground a reality, were there to do the honours with the spade.

Work to build it will get underway after Easter weekend and will take roughly 8-10 weeks to complete.

Features of the new playground include a water play area, large wheelchair-accessible merry-go-round, all-abilities swings, a wheelchair-accessible trampoline, an all-abilities seesaw, climbing ropes, picnic tables, park benches, tower and slides, and much more.

Good times are coming soon kids!
