New play areas

We've built a new playground in Wakefield Park, Berhampore.

Wakefield Park play area, including a tower and slide, balance beam, and seesaw.

Te Papa Tākaro o Jim Belich (Jim Belich Playground)

In 2017 we consulted with the public about possible locations for a new playground in Wakefield Park, Berhampore. The preferred location was on the skate park side of Adelaide Road.

The draft plan went out for consultation in 2018, and construction was completed in June 2019 at a cost of $500,000.

The new playground includes: 

  • A tall climbing tower with slide
  • Two sets of swings including a basket swing
  • An accessible carousel
  • Sand play
  • A flying fox
  • An adventure trail  

We also worked with the Wellington Skate Association and added a small skate feature to the skate park adjacent to the playground.
