There has been much talk in recent years about the lack of challenging play experiences available in North-Eastern Rodney, so it’s about time there was an outdoor public play facility tailored to teenagers and adults right here in Warkworth.
I’m excited to be working with the Warkworth Lions and a small project team to help engage with the wider Warkworth community in planning and constructing a precinct for an advanced play space in Lucy Moore Park. Being out and about, I’ve had the chance to speak with a lot of our young people about this area in particular, and about ways in which we can best utilise it.
We’re looking to create an open play space in keeping with the natural surroundings that offers equipment that you can’t access anywhere else in Auckland. Having already identified a few potential pieces, such as a network of in-ground trampolines and big swings, that would see thrill seekers flipping from one tramp to the next or launching meters out, high over the bank.
So, if this sounds up your alley, come on down to Lucy Moore Park for our Play Space Open Day, enjoy a sausage sizzle and have your say on the equipment you want to see in this space.
