Waipapa Reserve play area concept plan (7.21MB PDF)

The proposed concept plan includes:

  • a log bridge
  • monkey bars
  • turn bars
  • a lilypad basket swing 
  • belt swings for toddlers and other users
  • a fireman's pole
  • balancing steps
  • a monorail flying fox
  • two new slides: Straight slide and tube slide
  • a lunar rope climber spinner
  • a rock wall.

We couldn't fit a replacement swing set up the top and comply with the current standards, so we are adding more equipment together in the main playground below.

The Waipapa Reserve play area is considered a neighbourhood play area, which aims to provide a handy place for a quick play and play opportunities targeting at least one age group. This type of play area is for the neighbourhood within a 600-metre walking distance.
