Are you a regular visitor to Hammond Park? Hamilton City Council wants your input on a planned upgrade of the Hammond Park playground in Riverlea.
The playground currently consists of a single set of swings. Council is proposing to keep the play space small but to update it so it’s more fun for local kids.
The swings will be replaced with three to four pieces of more interesting play equipment, using natural materials so the playground blends into surrounds.
Council is also proposing to add public toilets to the park, which currently has none. When the Hamilton to Cambridge leg of the Te Awa River Ride is complete, it will run through the park, creating more demand for facilities.
The community has from 2 February until 28 February to have their say on the proposed work with feedback helping to shape final decisions.
The Hammond Park project is part of Hamilton City Council’s ongoing playground renewals programme, which focuses on making sure the city’s play spaces are still working well. Ageing assets are replaced and opportunities for improvements taken.
People can provide feedback through the Hamilton City Council website at Hamilton.govt.nz/haveyoursay or by completing a feedback form from libraries and the Council’s central city offices by 28 February.
