Frank Kitts Park playground redevelopment

Design plan for Frank Kitts Park playground


October 2023

Work is starting on the Frank Kitts Park playground project following a delay due to a number of factors including liquidation of the original contractor, rising inflation and other cost pressures.

Following funding approval for a more modest playground, Downer Group NZ has been contracted to deliver the new design for summer 2024.


The new look playground will have key elements from the previous plans including the refurbished iconic lighthouse slide, accessible equipment, swing sets and a carousel.
