“Thank you so much for your support with this project [Park Supplies and Playgrounds]. I am thrilled with the end result and it is all well worth the ‘negotiation’ process. The tamariki just love the pieces of equipment
- outstanding choices!”

Add new dynamic play equipment to extend the life of your existing playground
With an increasing school roll over the last few years the Principal realised the need for a larger playground.
St Joseph’s knew their playground was in good condition, but they needed more equipment and experiences
for their children to play on.
Park Supplies and Playgrounds were approached to add physical experiences to the current playground whilst minimizing the use of additional space so as not to encroach on other greenfield areas. Enter the children. Consultation with the kids quickly narrowed down what they wanted.
Firstly, there was the swing set. The LillyPad was a favourite
of the children so two of these were included allowing
for a large number of children to experience the motion
of these fabulous swings. These were then separated by two new traditional seated swings.
Beside the swing set, a spinning Orex climber was installed. The Orex is favourite of the Park Supplies and Playgrounds team and with a small footprint and the ability to hold up to 40 children at a time it has quickly become a favourite of the children as well.
Finally, new monkey bars and a “flying fox” (Monorail) made up the completed upgraded playground.
