Out of all the playgrounds they visited, Violet “looooved the pirate ship" in Hataitai, while Charlotte enjoyed Grasslees Reserve where they “played in the spinny mouse wheel for soooo long!".
The tamariki ranked Mahoe Street in Tawa as the "worst playground" as it had very basic equipment and was basically "just a hill!' But Ana says it's one redeeming feature was that "it would be really good for cricket". It's no surprise, this play area has been decommissioned as a playground!
Wellington City Council Play Spaces Specialist Matthew Beres is thrilled to see Tamariki enjoying playgrounds around the city.
“Council aim to inspire children to play in many different ways throughout the city, including in parks, reserves, beaches and sports grounds. We understand the importance of play for children everyday, in their own way, and the need for children to have a say in how their spaces are designed.
“Thanks so much to these awesome students for giving them a try and dedicating the time to do this.”
Here are their results.
