The dream of a new playground for the Kaiti Community, in Gisborne, has now become a reality.
The Council worked hard to gather insights through community engagement about what the tamariki wanted included in their space. It’s a good reminder that young people have a lot to contribute to the development of their community, and we need to make opportunities to give them a voice.
The park has a rich history, and linking the seven housewives of Dalton Street back into the play space, will enhance and grow this into future stories. We restored items of existing playground equipment, with a good variety of equipment including spinning, swinging, slide, balance and climbing gear.
The winning design ticked all of their boxes.
