New playground and pump track for Hartford Avenue Reserve

A new playground and pump track has been completed at Hartford Avenue Reserve for the community in Papamoa Beach.

General Manager of Community Services, Gareth Wallis, said it’s been wonderful to hear so many young people have been out enjoying the new facilities.

“So far we’ve had some great feedback from nearby residents and kids. Now we’re in level one, we’re letting everyone know this project is complete.

The specifically designed low-impact pump track for bikes, scooters and skateboards has been constructed as a one-way track. This runs in an anti-clockwise direction with the outside loop suitable for advanced riders and the inside for beginners.

The new fit for purpose playground was inspired by the Legend of Mangatawa, ‘Three Whales’. It includes a new colour scheme to complement the natural environment (ocean, harbour and hills).

The new equipment includes:

  • Tower and slide
  • Whale rocker
  • Carousel
  • Seesaw
  • A play area for toddlers
  • Swings

Huge thanks to the local community and Tahatai Coast School for their ideas, inspiration and close collaboration on the design for this project.
