We're upgrading Campbell Park playground in Paekākāriki in the 2019/20 financial year. Following talks with the community, we have two designs based on the feedback we received. We're asking you to vote now for your favourite and the most preferred design will be built. It's really easy!
Here's an overview of our playground upgrades programme to help answer any questions you may have.
Note: The existing metal slide will remain and we're looking at ways to increase it's slipperiness.
What's your preferred option? Vote now! Closing date is Wednesday 16 October.
