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 are replacing or upgrading several playgrounds across Hamilton.

Glenview Park: An upgrade to create a larger playground with more play equipment, bins, a drinking fountain, a half basketball court and seating. Construction will start in January 2021 and take approximately four months.

Tauhara Park, Rototuna: A renewal of this destination playground. Construction starts in March and is due for completion in June 2021. We're updating some of the play equipment and the safety surface and adding more shade and furniture.

Hammond Park, Riverlea: A basic neighbourhood playground replacement is proposed for this park. This will likely include swings, a slide and timber for climbing. Further community engagement on this project will take place early in 2021.​
