Testimonials

I would recommend Playground Centre for any school that is looking to improve their playground area. They were fast to send initial quotes and designs, and happy to relook and adjust numerous times until we had a good balance of our grand ideas and our actual budget! They enabled us to get an amazing result, incorporating some of our existing playground, getting our parent community together to be part of the install and the children to help create their own playground. It was wonderful to see everyone come together and help create this playground. The kids love it.

The Xtreme 557 fitness playground is an absolute hit with our senior students! They are all over it during break time and play a chase game as well as the usual swinging, climbing and monkeying around. Playground Centre has been very supportive throughout the process, from the first visit to introduce their products through to fundraising suggestions, and the formal paperwork including engineering specifications. We have appreciated working with them to modernise our play area for the senior students, and are thrilled with the playground.

Thank-you so much for providing our children with such an amazing playground. I really your time in supporting us over the years to see our vision come into fruition. I know it took time to get our funds together, and I really appreciate you being so patient with us. I hope to have the opportunity to work with you again in the future or recommend you to perspective Early Childhood Centres.

The team at Playground Centre were all too happy to accommodate our ideas – from early consultation, through to providing artwork renders for school presentations and even allowing us to alter the equipment design, height and colour to suit our school requirements.

The installation provided some challenges, but the Playground Centre team and their contractors rose to the challenge and created a finished product that is exactly what we desired at the start of the process. We are very happy with the results.”

"I would like to express my gratitude to the team at Playground Centre for the service, Knowledge and Experience I received during the design and build project at the Aotea Lagoon Playground, your company has also showed these great skills on other projects within Porirua City. Great problem solving skills and good open communication.

Thanks for the great service, Playground designs and high quality playground equipment keep it up."

Jethro Mullen

Porirua City Council

"As usual I found dealing with the staff and contractors from the Playground Centre to be easy and convenient. The $200,000 project was ‘headlined’ by a Playground Centre designed and built light house tower. The design reflected the marine environment and replicated the old playground that was removed to make way for the new development.

The Playground Centre was flexible throughout the whole process and delivered a quality and innovative product that will be there for many years to come; in the harshest of environments.

I would have no hesitation in recommending the Playground Centres playgrounds to any local authority wanting a high quality and playable playground."

"Playground Centre were engaged by Tauranga City Council to design a playground that would create an experience for all ages of children and encourage parents to visit the Tauranga CBD with their children. Playground Centre delivered a quality and outstanding play feature, on time and on budget that has surpassed councils expectations of use and attraction."

Hi there – I wanted to give you a BIG shout out to say “well done”! You have such fantastic, safe and fun play equipment. My boys (7 & 8) have been crawling, sliding, swinging and climbing all over the recently installed Play Ground Centre play equipment at Pharazyn Reserve (Waikanae Beach 5036). It looks great, seems pretty durable and you’ve also thought about those little things to make it extra safe e.g. covering the screw caps and chains.

The kids love it and a few adults too! I love how safe it is.

Just wanted to commend you on the design of an awesome, safe product!!

Happy Mum!

At Sancta Maria College we wanted to provide an area of fun play and physical challenge for our older students. The age of the students presented a unique challenge – we had to ensure that the equipment was age appropriate and not perceived as “kids’ stuff” in order to avoid the risk of the area becoming unpopular and unused.

We conducted a lot of research on available solutions, including taking students out and physically testing the equipment. We found that the Xtreme Elite equipment from Playground Centre was the most challenging and engaging – especially the “Muscle Buster”. Our one concern was that we wanted more height in order to provide greater challenge for the students.

The team at Playground Centre were all too happy to accommodate our ideas – from early consultation, through to providing artwork renders for school presentations and even allowing us to alter the equipment design, height and colour to suit our school requirements.

The installation also provided some challenges, but the Playground Centre team and their contractors rose to the challenge and created a finished product that is exactly what we desired at the start of the process. We are very happy with the results.

Just a word of appreciation, after 6 months in Auckland on ‘grandmother duty’ I’m utterly impressed with the quality and imaginative design of your equipment. The Auckland City Council is agreat customer of yours and I’m pleased! My grandchildren enjoy your stuff so much and it’s relatively stress-free for the caregiver.
