Recreation hub for Te Awamutu

Recreation hub for Te AwamutuWork will soon be underway on the exciting new recreation hub for the Te Awamutu community. First up, the playground!

This new destination playground is something we are really looking forward to. The play space will be built near Selwyn Park and along the Mangaohoi Stream, and we hope it will become a central place the community can enjoy together. Initial plans were released for consultation​ in August 2016 which resulted in encouraging feedback from the public.

Council will be doing a lot of work over the coming months to transform the space in to a grass terraced area with seating and picnic areas. The current playground will be getting a refresh and there will be lots of new features too. 

Some features of the new play space will include:

  • a water play area
  • a slide area
  • new playground equipment
  • a new fenced under-5 play area
  • a bike skills area (detailed plans for this aspect are still being finalised).
