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 has now confirmed a destination playground will be developed at Hare Puke Park and a small neighbourhood playground at Te Huia Reserve.
In September 2017 we asked residents what they thought of the designs for the two playgrounds. Now that we have gathered the feedback we will start finalising the designs ready for construction to begin in early 2018.
Hare Puke Park is a large open space which can better accommodate a destination playground, and also capacity for supporting facilities such as toilets. Next door to the future Sylvester School, there is an opportunity to create a unique community space.
Te Huia Reserve is a better suited park for a neighbourhood playground. Being smaller in size the park offers a nice setting for a smaller playground for the local community to enjoy.
Bespoke Landscape Architects has prepared draft 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.
