Located just across the road from Paekākāriki Beach, Campbell Park offers football spectators and players a unique experience. You can hear the sea pounding on the shore nearby and the terraced seating on the eastern hill provides pleasant views over the grounds and out to Kāpiti Island. Pohutukawa trees provide great shade around the park perimeter.
Above the playing field, there's a playground where children can play safely – the best way to get here is via The Parade. The park stretches up the hill to Wellington Road, so there's plenty of open grassy space for picnics and a leisurely stroll. The Paekākāriki Memorial Hall - right next door on The Parade - is a popular venue for local functions and serves as a focal point for the community.

To help everyone be part of the conversation, this playground has communication boards in both English and Māori. They are a form of AAC (Augmentative and Alternative Communication) that non-speaking people use to communicate. We have designed these boards to support non-speaking tamariki and whānau in their play.
Our boards were developed in partnership with TalkLink Trust, our Disability Advisory Group, with input from a speech language therapist and parents of non-verbal children. For more information on developing a core board for your group or organisation, contact TalkLink Trust.
