Flagstaff North Destination Playground

​​​Two new playgrounds will be constructed in Flagstaff North. 

In July 2017 we asked the community for feedback on the location and theme of the two playgrounds. Following the community consultation, the Council confirmed a destination playground will be developed at Hare Puke Park and a smaller neighbourhood playground at Te Huia Reserve.

In September 2017 we asked residents for their views on the designs for the two playgrounds. Based on feedback from the community, Bespoke Landscape Architects have prepared concept plans for both playgrounds based around a tuna (eel) and hinaki (eel net) theme which reflect the cultural heritage of the area. This theme ranked highest in the first round of consultation.

Hare Puke Park Destination Playground will feature junior and senior play areas. A large play net, swings, sand play and junior play unit will feature. The playground will have toilets, shade sails and seating. Next door to the future Sylvester School there is an opportunity to create a unique community space.

Hare Puke Park Destination Playground construction will begin April and be complete before the end of June.

Te Huia Reserve Neighbourhood Playground will feature a play net, swings, slide and spinners. Being smaller in size to Hare Puke Park, the park offers a nice setting for a smaller playground for the local community to enjoy.

Te Huia Reserve Neighbourhood Playground construction will begin in March and be complete in May.
