Playground Strategy – Napier City Council

By October 30, 2019 No Comments

We prepared a Playground Strategy, to provide short-, medium- and long-term priorities and future opportunities to be considered, that will benefit Napier’s young generation and ensure play is valued and accessible for all abilities.  We looked at current playgrounds and youth facilities, their distribution and community satisfaction, engaged user surveys, assessed the equipment and levels of service provided, and researched trends and industry best practices for play provision. Urban play environments are rapidly changing and becoming more inspiring, attractive and diverse.  We introduced some distinct examples such as nature play, virtual reality in parks and adventure playgrounds which differ drastically from the traditional ‘off-the-shelf’ play equipment, and produced some key strategies for going forward.
