Playground proves magnet

Jun 9th, 2019 | By

Tamahere’s new skatepark and children’s playground is proving a magnet for skaters, bikers, scooters, kids and their parents.

It’s the second weekend in a row that people have flocked to the new facility … but this weekend the fences were down to allow for easier access.

When Tamahere Forum stopped by the area was packed with kids of all ages trying out the new play equipment or doing spectacular tricks on wheels on the skatepark.



No playground blow-out, says council

The Tamahere Recreation Reserve and Piazza project has not had a cost blow-out, says the Waikato District Council.

The council has been moved to counter a media report that the budget for Tamahere Park has blown its budget with a $1.6m cost that was around four times the original plan.

But the reported figures – dubbed “Monopoly money” by one councillor – are supplier quotes and cost estimates, not actual costs, the council said in a statement.
