Mega and basket swings, a “spinning circus”, “mini birds nest” and an in-ground trampoline are all “upping the fun quotient” at the Haumoana Playground.
The playground is the most recent Hastings playground to undergo a refresh. It is almost finished and kids will love it.
Hastings District Council’s parks manager Colin Hosford says traditional play equipment, like toddlers’ swings and slides, is still available.
Haumoana Playground sits within Haumoana Memorial Park. Most of the equipment in the park was installed in 1965 – which made it 50 years old.
More recently added play gear, including the skate plaza, climbing frame and slide with fireman’s pole, are staying.
To help plan the upgrade residents were asked what they wanted to see in the playground and the area around it and the age groups they and their children fitted into. They were also asked to rank different types of equipment, and to add their ideas of what would be popular.
“We’ve had a lot of great feedback, and we can’t wait to open it so the kids can have a go at it.”
The fences will be taken down at the end of this week, with an opening planned for Friday, October 28. At that event the new planting plan for the park will be unveiled and information about Poppy Places in Haumoana will be available. Poppy Places is a national programme recognising the links between place names and military history.
