Takapuna Beach Reserve Playground

Takapuna Beach Playground is one of Auckland’s destination playgrounds for kids of all ages and one of the Top 10 playgrounds in Auckland

This fun playground has a 9 metre high tower with slides which joins to a 7 meter high climbing rope structure. Kids will enjoy the in-ground trampolines, merry-go-round swings, balancing seesaw, basket swing, and giant mouse house hamster wheel and water play area. The merry-go-round and one of the in-ground trampoline is wheelchair accessible too, so children of all abilities can play together. When you can finally get the kids to leave the playground, you can all relax in the  hammocks under the pohutakawa trees or go for swim (if it is summer) or a walk (if it is winter) on Takapuna Beach.
