We are planning for two future playgrounds at Hiskens Reserve, Te Awamutu and Kings Garden, Cambridge and want the community’s input to help design them.

The two locations have been identified as ideal sites for new playground equipment.

Hiskens Reserve on Hiskens Place currently only has a slide and fireman’s pole and the next closest playground is a 20-minute walk. Kings Garden on Tulip Drive has a slide and set of swings and the next closest playground is a 17-minute walk.

It is hoped the playgrounds will be built within the next two years, dependent on funding being allocated in the next Long-term Plan.

The community’s input will help shape the design of the playgrounds, it will focus on maximising play value, safety standards and making sure the equipment is something tamariki will love.

Thank you to everyone who provided their feedback, consultation is now closed.
