Owairoa Primary Case Study
School Senior Playground
The relationship between Park Supplies and Owairoa Primary School goes back to 2012, when 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 and also incorporated custom routering with the schools logo shield, finished with Play Matta safety surfacing. 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 (Principal), 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 powdercoated steel posts, incredible custom routered rockwalls, 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.
