Pohe Island playground

An area next to the Hātea Loop and the new Pohe Island skatepark will be home to an exciting destination playground. 

Contractors United Civil Construction have started preparing the site for the construction of the new Pohe Island playground.

Contractors are clearing all the vegetation and piles of other material such as old concrete light poles, stockpiles of poor-quality soil, and other debris such as old tyres.

Once this has been completed and the playground site has been levelled, work will begin on importing good clay fill. The work will be weather dependent.

The next steps will be the installation of power, water and wastewater connections. 

Once finished, the playground will be a destination play experience for locals and visitors alike, featuring climbing structures, slides, a large sandpit, many swings, new toilets and space to run around.

To complement the new Town Basin playground, the Pohe Island destination playground will provide more adventurous play on a much larger scale.

Parking for the new playground will be available at the large 272-space Pohe Island carpark, accessed off Riverside Drive.

The playground will be completed in 2022.
