Playground progress

A new playground has appeared on Titirangi/Kaiti Hill . . . but in a different place.

The brand new playground apparatus is on the flat land next to the first carpark as you drive up the hill.

In April, the old wooden fort play structure near the top of the hill was taken down by the Gisborne District Council for “safety reasons”. It had been there since the 1980s and was the oldest in the region.

GDC community assets and resources manager Laird Kennedy said the new location would provide better access for cars and pedestrians.

"A wooden maypole, added more recently is still in place at the site. The new Titirangi playground at the lower carpark should be complete in the next week and opened next Friday depending on the weather.

The playground equipment is being assembled and installed on site and will include soft-fall around the base. The lower carpark has just gone through an upgrade with new footpath and plantings."
