Auckland Council<br />Tui Glen Reserve, Henderson

Play Priorities:

Auckland Council was seeking a playground that offered an element of play for all ages in a central location in the 5.42 ha reserve which is renowned as being New Zealand’s first camping ground.

The vision was to design and install a playground with a ‘tree-top’ theme to reflect the natural landscape of mature trees and the heritage of the reserve and its camp site.

Fun Solution:

Playground Centre worked with the Auckland Council to design an open plan playground on a raised central knoll, surrounded by trees and a pedestrian pathway. Play pieces such as towers and an eagle’s nest were specifically chosen to elevate users to eye level with the tree tops. Installed slides and flying foxes also took advantage of the existing contours with the new playground offering outdoor recreation for the whole family and a physical challenge.

Play Pieces:

Pyramid Towers: With stunning height and spectacular look, these towers draw adults and children alike into the tree tops (For all ages).

Basket Swing: Sit, stand or kneel, alone or with others, this swing opens a wealth of possibilities (For all ages).

Eagles Nest: Everyone wants to be like a bird. Climb high into the sky and relax in one of many nests (6+ years).

Dual Flying Fox: Zoom through the air and race like the wind. Challenge your buddies to race on dual flying foxes (For all ages).

Tree Hut: A house in the air where you can climb inside and play, and then take one of the very fast exits to escape (For 3 – 11 years).
