We are committed to improving the accessibility of our play spaces for the whole community by having connecting paths to each site. And, excitedly, our playgrounds will include items of sensory play, that incorporate touch and sound.
Playground upgrades and renewals are driven by the condition of the equipment. Sometimes the equipment can look perfectly fine but in reality be close to the end of its life. The inspections we do of the equipment is quite in-depth, so while the equipment may look perfectly fine, underneath the paint and coverings is where the true condition is measured.
We are making plans to upgrade Moray Park in Papakōwhai in February/March 2021 and have heard your ideas about what we could include in the upgrade, and how you or your whānau use the space.

Ascot Park Playspace upgrade vote results!
Thank you for sending us your votes for the Ascot Park playground. We received 112 votes from the community and the preferred playground was Option 2, with 67%. Thank you for taking the time to vote for your favourite.
We are finalising the design now and construction for the majority of the new playspace upgrade is planned for March/April 2021.
Some final works may need to be completed later in 2021.
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone us on 04 237 5089 for more information on either of these planned upgrades.
We will use the feedback to inform the design brief of the upgrades. If we have two preferred options following the design submissions, we will give you a chance to vote on your favourite design – so keep an eye out for a second survey in November!
Thanks to the feedback we received from the public late in 2019, we have made changes to the design. You told us that the playground needs to cater for younger children, have challenging elements, can handle a number of kids at one time, not have loud musical items, but include bright, bold colours. We’re confident that this new design ticks all of those boxes after working very closely with our playground suppliers.
There’s a bit going on there and we’re mindful that you may have a few questions. You can always email email@example.com or call us on 04 237 5089 if you have any queries.
After fantastic feedback from residents, we're pleased to see this playground being well-used. We made some minor changes to make the space extra special. See photos below.
The playground renewal is complete. The playground from a design view looks like this (see below). In the past six months, Bodmin Tce and Navigation Dr reserves have both had their playgrounds renewed. Head over and check them out!
