At last the riverside path in the Margaret Mahy Playground has been re-opened. Yesterday there were lots of activities going on, including stalls where children could make pinwheel flags.
There are many new picnic tables, still roped off at present while the grass grows. I hope they’ll put in some benches with back support as well.
On the path I saw a new inscription from James K Baxter’s ‘Virginia Lake’. “Where once a child walked and wondered at the leaves’ treasure house.”
There’s a new barbecue area – wonderful for long summer evenings.
And a new bike stand – hurray!
“The playground’s got some great new things
to complement the slides and swings.’
