It is time for a play area refresh

All the existing equipment will be removed and replaced. The new playground will remain in the general area where it is now and the basketball court will be renewed in its current location.

There are a number of other playgrounds in Hornby with standard play equipment so there is an opportunity for the play area at Branston Park to be different. 

We are planning to set out the play equipment like an obstacle course so children can challenge themselves to complete the progressively more difficult obstacles. 

The new play area [JPG, 254 KB] will also include:

  • A swing set in a similar location
  • Additional seating area near the half basketball court

Next steps

The project team will consider all feedback and make a  recommendation to the  Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board. If approved, construction of the playground is expected to start mid 2021, subject to weather conditions and contractor availability.
