New Park Shaping Up nicely

236
A long-awaited outdoor half-sized basketball court and adjoining play area is not too far off completion on the land behind the HQ building on the corner of Buckley Ave and Cinema Road.
This great new ‘dome swing’ is alongside the basketball area, and is shown here being worked on by contractors this week. The swing’s seat, set at 500ml off the ground, will offer lots of fun.
The long connecting line to the top of the dome allows for wide swinging and swooping within the frame’s parameters. There are picnic tables and seats too. Likely opening time is not yet fixed as there’s extra planting and grass still to come to complement the row of lovely old pohutukawas on site. Once complete, it’ll be a welcome outdoor-activity space and a great addition to the Point’s other parks.
