Destination Playground about to get even better


WAIROA’s popular Destination Playground is about to get even better.

The main street attraction was opened just before Christmas and has proven a hit with locals and visitors.


Stage two will begin this week with the installation of five picnic tables, CCTV signage and anti-climb guards to keep youngsters safe by preventing them from climbing the outside of the large rocket slide.

As the project is rolled out water fountains, bike and scooter racks and eventually shade provisions and toilets will all feature.

Mayor Craig Little is thrilled with the popularity of the playground,

“We promised our kids we would open a playground for them before Christmas and we did that.

“Now the facility will only be better with the installation of even more features.

“Good things take time and it was always council’s intention to build the playground in stages and roll out more facilities.

“The goal was for the kids in our community to have something fun to play on.

“The playground is being well used and adding these features will make it even better and even safer.

“Completing the playground in stages means we have been able to identify areas that need attention and address them.

An issue that has been highlighted is the need for children to be supervised when they are playing.

“It’s a great facility for our town and it is important we keep our children safe when they are playing by not leaving them unsupervised.
