Playground Upgrades

​​We have a regular programme of playground upgrades and renewals across the city, so our smallest residents have plenty of safe, fun and up-to-date play spaces.

We will be replacing or upgrading several playgrounds across Hamilton during the 2019-20 financial year.

Melville Park: A renewal and upgrade of the Melville skate park and playground. Keep up to date with the project here: Hamilton.govt.nz/melvilleskate

Hamilton Lake Domain: A renewal of the lower level lakeside playground area on the eastern side of the Domain, including the swings, sand and water play spaces and fenced junior area. 

Hamilton Lake Domain final plan

Jansen Park: A basic neighbourhood playground replacement. This will likely include a small play unit, swings and see-saws.

Discovery Park: A basic neighbourhood playground replacement. This will likely include a basketball half-court, swings and a timber multi-play unit.

Inuwai Street Park, Dixon Heights: We're upgrading the Inuwai Street park to create a better space for the neighbourhood. The park will include a basketball half-court, flat grassed areas and a playground with swings, slides and balance equipment. There will also be picnic areas, cycle and scooter racks and a drinking fountain. Keep up to date here: Hamilton.govt.nz/inuwaipark

Projects for the 2020-21 financial year include upgrades to Glenview Park, Hayes Paddock, Hammond Park, Claudelands Park and Elliot Park playground and skate area. Watch this page for more detail.
