It was a wonderful turnout from the Whitianga community for the official opening ceremony of the Whitianga playground on
What an amazing effort by everyone involved, in creating an incredible play space that inspires and ignites the magic of play in a stunning seaside location. It's packed with adventure and new play experiences for all ages and all abilities.
The location of this play space is rich in local history and it has been designed to link to the history of the land. The ship, the HMS Buffalo is a great place for children to use their imagination and learn about the history of the vessel.
The use of different textures throughout the playground provide exciting elements that reflect the seaside theme - sand and water play, board walks, and wheel tracks that create many areas for children to move freely and explore. The play space is completed with natural plantings.
Thank you Thames Coromandel District Council for making this happen for your community.
Thank you Boffa Miskell Tauranga for the amazing design.
