Took the daughter of a friend to play here. I hadn't know it existed and was amazed at how big it was and how many different things there were to play on. Even older kids and little kids found something they loved.

Been open now for a while & has proved very popular, even over the Winter. Being right by the beach the view is always worthwhile. Just watch the children crossing the adjacent road - which is used as a slip road to Hurstmere Road.

My kids love this playground! it has a lot of variety, places to climb, play, grass to roll in, and banks to roll down. The in-ground tramps offer something extra, and the giant hamster wheel is fun.

Really new playground - maybe 1-year-old with different toys to kids and with an amazing view of Takapuna beach. Super close to the toilets as well, what help the parents.

This playground was great! The kids loved it! They had an hour of climbing and sliding and spinning and it was only hunger that intervened. The only thing was it was a little overcrowded and it was winter! Can’t imagine how bad in the summer....More

There is a sandpit, swings, a hamster wheel, multiple slides, high obstacles, climbing things, a nice beach, some hammocks, trampolines, bins, but a lot of people. Some parts might be too difficult for younger children.
