School Senior Playground
Owairoa Primary School Case Study
The relationship between Park Supplies and Owairoa Primary School goes back to 2012. We were asked to design a custom Fitness trail to run down the side of the school playing field. The Fitness trail included single activity stations for strength, balance and coordination. Also incorporated custom routering with the schools logo shield. Finished with Play Matta safety surfacing.
Upgrading the existing playground
After further fundraising by the school, we installed the “Hurricane climber’’ to the end of the Fitness trail, which gave it a real feature element for the senior kids. In 2015 we started work on the first of 6 concept designs to replace the schools tired old main playground.
Alan McIntyre - Owairoa School Principal
The Board and team started to get an idea of what they wanted for the new playground. We had meetings and a board presentation to work on developing what is probably the largest play project in any East Auckland school!
This playground has got EVERYTHING, from powder coated steel posts, incredible custom routered rock-walls, a ginormous mammoth net cube and the Orex climbing spinner. The project was finished with Play Matta safety surfacing, shade sails, new retaining walls, fully accessible ramp entry, planter boxes and bench seating. Both Owairoa and Park Supplies share the same passion for innovation and quality. Alan McIntyre’s team is always amazing to work with, and we really value his support of our products and services over the past 6 years and look forward to further exciting projects with the school.
"What a pleasure it has been to work with such a motivated company that not only listens but also ensured that we had a great result in the end."
