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 the possible locations of a new playground in Wakefield Park, Berhampore. The preferred location was on the skate park side of Adelaide Road.

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.

Construction was completed in June 2019 and cost $500,000.
