Waikanae North playground

Buildings of the Ryman complex (Charles Fleming) are in the background.

Some readers in nearby streets will remember a council leaflet drop about this, the main part of which was an invitation to vote for one of two slide designs (see below): the one on the left was apparently preferred over the long slide in a tube and this installation was done near the end of June.

For some reason, the location was moved from close to the recently created Waipunahau Street, where there were a couple of existing swings, to the middle of the open area.  According to the blue sign (click for the full view), the swings, which weren’t old, are being given ‘a bit of a spruce up’ and the little mound of dirt visible will be ‘shaped and landscaped.’

It does not seem as if the seat and the drinking fountain near Waipunahau Street are being moved, however.
