This newly opened park was so popular we are taking another group of children in a couple of weeks.

Interconnecting spaces link as triangles from above to form Play Spaces that appeal to the target age range, but have proved hugely popular with other groups too.

This youth park is unique and fascinating, inspired by the concept, ' Waharua kopito' which means 'a point where people or events cross.' To embody this idea, the park is designed around a series of interconnecting triangles. Once an overgrown lot adjacent to West Auckland BMX club, the park now boasts a basketball court, whanau area and netscape structure, created by PlayRope and partners, that has installed custom-built mounds.

Appointed by project landscape architects, Isthmus, and the Auckland Council, PlayRope drew on our extensive experience and our relationship with supply partner, Berliner Seilfabrik, to produce a netscape structure that will appeal to and challenge young people. 

An exhilarating climbing structure that really tests the skills of young, energetic people, it is far from 'traditional' play.

Centred on the use of a number of interconnected, hanging rubber pods that are suspended by ropes, the course is not just an opportunity to play and hang out, but is also a valuable fitness challenge.
