Innovative design for greenspaces,
parks and reserves

Yes we could create a playground design and replicate it across numerous parks, but we don’t. Why? Because we believe every playground should be unique to its environment. 

We work collaboratively with councils and landscape designers ensuring each setting has
its own magic that we want to tap into.

Our playgrounds are built to last – so too are our relationships with our clients.
That way, fun can be had by all.

Council projects

From unique playground designs to flying foxes, swings, carousels, rockers, climbing walls, slides and see-saws, wooden benches and picnic tables, we have a wide range of equipment suitable for council parks and reserves. This equipment is low maintenance, extremely hardy and vandal resistant. Furthermore, our bespoke design service means each playground is built to sit naturally within the park’s environment.

Lets work together to deliver your vision. Get in touch.

Spotlight on Te Kopua Reserve

Te Kopua Reserve is picture perfect, set right beside the harbour in Raglan. Being walking distance from town, it is a popular family destination.

Working with Waikato District Council, we created a play space, paving, and park furniture that can be enjoyed by all.

A senior playground located close to the skate park provide challenges, and includes swings and Raglan’s very own crafted wooden surfboard balance.   

There is a space for younger children to explore, including a pre-school playground, climbing net and toddler swings.  

This reserve is set up for children of all ages to run round freely and explore a huge range of activities from sliding, swinging, spinning and balancing.    

It’s the talk of the town.

"Playground Creations is great to work with. It is collaborative and flexible to the needs and feedback from the local community and client. It designs and installs play areas that are innovative, fun and have a range of play activity, yet are cost effective and robust."

Spotlight on Jim Barker Memorial Playground

The park was named after transport industry legend and proud Otorohanga local – Jim Barker.

Located in New Zealand’s official ‘Kiwiana Town’, the project was initiated by the Project Kiwiana Committee and supported by the Barker Family. Bespoke Landscape Architects designed the playground with a wide range of equipment and experiences for all ages and abilities. 

Working with Bespoke Landscape Architects, a custom-built truck, the ‘Straitsman’ boat and a flying fox were created and built by Playground Creations.

The truck represents Jim Barker and Otorohanga Transport, where local and visiting families can imagine driving to farms or herding livestock up the race.  

The ‘Straitsman’ boat allows children to image “sailing” across the Cook Straight with their heads full of dreams.

"For a new attraction at the Avantidrome, Playground Creations were excellent at interpereting our brief and turning it into something spectacular. The quality of workmanship, creativity and innovative solutions were critical in delivering a wonderful community facility."
