The playground has been closed off for some time, as part as renovations, and only open a few weeks. The new playground has definitely been a big hit with the locals; we’ve rarely seen it empty. Auckland council have added a water play area, which my little mint adores. She gets absolutely soaked through, but it’s worth it to hear her chuckle away.
The whole playground is fenced in, so I didn’t have to worry about my little mint wandering off into the road.
The general park area also has:
- Car Park (Connaught Street)
- Toilets (Portage Road)
- Several fitness stations e.g. sit up benches
- Walking tracks
- Dog exercise areas
The park is within an easy walk to Green Bay beach and the West Auckland Community Toy Library. If you need a bite to eat, the closest places are Blockhouse Bay (shops, cafes and restaurants) or Green Bay (bakery and the Zoom Espresso coffee shop).
