New Town Basin Playground preview

The Team from Whangarei District Council

The new Town Basin Playground is SO CLOSE now - and with approval from the official playground safety inspector we even let one of our staff take a 3.5 minute break to play on it 🍿. This could be you when the playground opens next Friday 29th!

* To do: Shade sails, hazard-fencing, and a few finishing touches.
