​We’re very excited to announce that Tikipunga will be getting a brand-new playground this year.

Contractors Playco, Shade Systems and Steve Bowling Contracting having been confirmed to design and build this exciting community space, which features purpose built play areas for children aged 2-12. Potter Park is on the corner of Vinegar Hill Road and Corks Road.

The land and $130,000 was donated by the Tikipunga Protestant Children’s Home Trust. These generous donations have allowed us to create a fun, family-friendly playground for all to enjoy.     

As usual with new playgrounds; we visited local schools so that the children could tell us what they wanted to see in their new playground, and the results were integrated into our final design.

In addition to the play equipment, we’ve added a shade sail, a children’s cycle track, some furniture and safe footpaths.

We’ve also made sure to include beautiful landscaping, with trees and native plantings drawn into the plans.

An exciting feature (and one that we’re sure even the big kids will have fun with) is the toddler bike track. This pint-sized path will include a concrete road complete with a water fountain and a family picnic table.   

Potter Park is due to start construction after the April school holidays, so keep watching the corner of Vinegar Hill and Corks Road, and you’ll see exciting developments taking shape.
