Tamahere Playground is located on Wiremu Tamihana Drive in Tamahere, which is just south of Hamilton. The playground was officially opened with the support of Students from Tamahere Model Country School who performed a haka and waiata to commemorate the official opening of the park. A tree planting by local tamariki, and a blessing for Ngati Haua, took place before local children were free to play.
Designed by Boffa Miskell Landscape Architects for the local community, Playground Creations supplied the play equipment, landscaping and completed the installation.
The main Tuna structure represents the eel (tuna) that live in our Waikato River. A large mound provides excellent opportunities for sliding, climbing, scaling and jumping on any of the three trampolines.
There is a good variety of activities including the popular Roktopus Mouse House, rockers, spinners, hammocks, percussion play for all ages and abilities.
An amazing play space has been created for a community that wanted something different.
