Nile Reserve playground renewal

Closed for feedback

About the Nile Reserve playground renewal

This consultation closed on Wednesday 25 September 2019. Thank you for having your say.

We received 50 submissions – 49 came through online form and one hard-copy letter.

Key feedback themes

  • Nile Reserve playground is used by a similar number of children aged under five and five to 12-year olds.
  • The majority of people preferred the playground to remain fully fenced to keep children safe from the busy road, to make it easier when caregivers take multiple children to the playground and to keep dogs off the playground.
  • Climbing, swinging and jumping were the most popular play activities. This was followed by monkey bars and nature play/balancing, then creative play and sliding.
  • A number of people asked for a hard-surface path to ride their scooters/skateboards and bikes on.
  • They also asked for the playground to be made bigger and more exciting, to include shade and have picnic areas.

What happens next

The next step is to develop the concept design before it is presented to Whau Local Board.

We hope to have the design ready for approval by the local board in June 2020.
