Feedback from our communities has been instrumental in our recent playground upgrades.
After a busy year of consultation and engagement, we've been hard at work refreshing and upgrading a bunch of play areas round the city.
Two of our most recently renewed play areas are Kekerenga Street Play Area in Strathmore Park, and the Khandallah Library Play Area.
The Kekerenga Street upgrade includes stepping logs, longer monkey bars, new swings, climbing tower with fireman’s pole and slide, and a toddlers’ pirate tower and slide.
For the Khandallah Library play area we’ve included a balance challenge circuit, transitioning between stepping logs and beams, and an elephant slide, fund raised by the local Khandallah Business Group (BID).

During the consultation process for these playground upgrades, we held several drop-in sessions and created feedback surveys where you shared your thoughts and ideas – and we listened.
We know that each Wellington community is unique and your feedback is super important, because it helps us come up with an awesome design that best serves the needs of the people who are going to use it most – the locals.
