Kiwi Built Playground | Africa

A Worthy Contribution

Devon Kilkelly | Ngara Nursery Africa

As a regular volunteer at Ngara children’s nursery, Malawi, Africa. Over the last 4 years Devon has worked at transforming a rundown, unsafe and very tired children's nursery. As a result it has gone from caring for 20 children to now over 90 children and is now a safe, educational and fun environment. However, Devons dream was to finally build a Playground!

Where we come in...

Park Supplies Playgrounds felt so moved and compelled by Devon’s story. We donated a full kiwi built playground to Devon’s amazing cause. With support from some of our suppliers we designed and built a playground for the nursery. By incorporating a multi-play structure, slide, climbers and play truck complete with a swing set and Minidome Spinner.

Devon and her Father Kevin made a visit to our Auckland factory for a day during the manufacturing process to see the products being made and meet our team. The playground kit-set was manufactured and shipped through a complex freight network with many border crossings.

Final Design:

  • Custom Playtruck Combo
  • Minidome Spinner
  • T'Bar Swing Structure

Kiwi Playground in Africa!

Devon and her family traveled to Malawi to meet the playground kitset and install the equipment with inclusion of the village locals.

Above all our philosophy at Park Supplies is all about local Kiwi designed and built playgrounds. Certainly we are so excited by the prospect to offer a New Zealand built playground to children across the globe. In conclusion we have enjoyed providing these children the opportunity that they have never had to swing, slide or spin on playground equipment and we are extremely proud to have a small slice of KIWI in Africa!
