Beach Road playground

Situated right by the sea in Whangamata, this playground design needed to shout out a seaside theme.  

This gave our team at Playground Creations the perfect excuse to get creative. Thatched beach huts providing shade and boats were designed, complemented with swings. It’s a perfect place to get the family together and take a family photo with a Whangamata wooden picture frame. 

The scope of this project had strict budgets and restrictive footprints. Playground Creations took into consideration all of the ideas, suggestions and budget and delivered a great value for money design.  

As a result, the community now has a very popular and
fitting playground that has received plenty of compliments
and smiles.

St Kilda Subdivision playground

An amazing play space has been created in Cambridge’s unique St Kilda subdivision in the Waikato.

St Kilda’s goal is to create a safer community for all residents.  Communal facilities such as a family playground area to foster a strong community spirit were important to this eco-friendly award-winning subdivision.  

This innovative play space has been created around a basketball court, with a focus on natural play. Playground Creations worked with Line & Design Landscapes to supply and install the playground equipment. Natural playground equipment has been positioned around the court. Mounds were formed for embankment slides, tunnels, natural stepping and balancing activities were scattered around the wheels track, together with swings and overhead activities.  

Designed to complement the natural environment, this play space has had rave reviews.

Waikirikiri playground

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.

Your project. Our passion. Let's play!
