Huge crowds descended on Gould Reserve next to Takapuna Beach for the grand opening of the incredible new playground. At what must have been one of the largest community events Takapuna has seen, people of all ages packed onto the playground site, which has been many years in the planning. The project, which was led and generously underwritten by local grandparents Jackie and Chris Reeve, was a cause championed by Channel and our publisher Aidan Bennett. It brought tears to some eyes to finally see children playing on the phenomenal play equipment, which has all ages and abilities factored into its impressive design. Face painting, bubble-blowing display and much more added to this red letter day celebration for the Shore.
