Work is now well underway creating a new toddler playspace at Jean Sampson Reserve, Northcote Point. The shade sail poles are installed, and when I visited recently, the pathways and adventure trail were being formed. Work is on-track to be completed in late-May/early-June (weather permitting).
The Kaipātiki Local Board has re-imagined the playground area as a fenced toddler playspace, with slides, tunnel, sandpit, talk tubes, climbing and imaginative nature play. There will also be shade sails, seating, picnic table, plantings and the current swing will be upgraded to include a basket swing. Importantly, the memorial fire engine will be cleaned up and relocated within the new playground, and the basketball half-court is staying.
