Havelock North Domain is a high-profile reserve in the centre of town. Hastings District Council has extensively redeveloped this reserve. After visiting our very successful 'Margaret Mahys Family Playground' in Christchurch, PlayRope was approached to work with Hastings District Council to create a unique, exciting, sensory play space that includes water and sound as its primary play elements.

Our custom designed Kaiser and Kuhne water play element allows users to pump water and work together with family and friends to discover how the system works. This is non-prescriptive play at its best! Additional high-quality unique play elements were added to compliment the water play system; the result is a fantastic family play space that is unique to the Hawkes Bay area.

Fun activities encouraging integration and social play for the whole family.

Playrope provided a preliminary concept design that was refined in conjunction with council and community to ensure a successful outcome.
