Tawa Park Playground Renewal

Closed 15 Sep 2022

Opened 23 Aug 2022

Feedback updated 15 Mar 2023

We asked

In August 2022, we asked the Hamilton Lake community for their feedback around an upgrade of the playground at Tawa Park. We wanted to know what sorts of play equipment they wanted to see at their playground, with a like-for-like renewal planned. This means that the playground will be staying roughly the same size and having the same number of play features.

You said

Through the engagement, some key themes and insights emerged.

Our community’s feedback focused on:

  • Adding more seating
  • Have the playground have bright and colourful areas
  • Incorporate more rubbish bins

We did

We are working on designs for Tawa Park playground, incorporating our community’s feedback. Construction is scheduled for April 2024.

We want to know what you want at Tawa Park Playground!

As part of the 2021-2024 10-Year Plan decisions, Council has committed funding to the improvement of playgrounds.

We want to make sure your voice is factored into the design of the new playground, which currently has a basic modular unit, swings and seesaw installed in 2005. 

Nearby Mahoe Park has musical items.

The new playground will be more up to date, providing fun within a safe yet challenging environment for our young explorers. We’d also like to make it easy for parents watching sports to see their other children playing on the playground.  

It will also encourage children to play in a range of different ways such as climbing, sliding, jumping and spinning, depending on the new equipment, encouraging them to experiment, make friends and have fun.  

We're also hosting an information drop-in session - check out the event details at the bottom of this page!
