Libby Forbes, Programme Coordinator from Te Pokapū Hapori says the team are enjoying being part of a positive change in the park.
"It’s great to be out and about, enjoying the sun and taking our programmes from inside Te Pokapū Hapori outside to Te Aro Park. We are humbled to be included in the efforts to restore the mana of the area. We look forward to our future activities that we plan to run and would love for as many people in the community to come and join us.”
A play box has also been installed to inspire children and adults to create and find everyday fun. Inside the box you’ll find all sorts, from chalk and bubbles to foam frisbees, Jenga and old pieces of pipe. No matter your age it’s an invitation to take five, get creative and lose yourself in the power of play. Play enables kids to navigate change, learn, rest and move in a way which is fundamental to childhood. We dare you to pause and play a while at Te Aro Park.
