Adventure awaits! Concept plans have been revealed for the adventure playground space on the mound at Taramea Bay and we want your feedback.
After collating all the ideas which flooded in during the public engagement phase earlier this year, we’ve worked with leading playground gurus Creo to create a concept design to spark your thinking. Now we want your ideas to evolve it even further.
Do you like the concept?

Excited for this.
Excited for this. The community board is carrying on work started in the early 1990s. Looking forward to some more development.

I'm sure it will look nice when done......but it's taken over 18 months to do Bath Road and it's not finished yet. Why can't you complete one area then move on. Maybe get some rubbish drums on Bath road in the mean time.

We choose to come specifically because of the family friendly nature of the bay. The main playground is getting a little dated and it would be nice to see it upgraded as well. The proposed playground looks great and it would also be nice to see things added to appeal to older children/preteen/teens. Challenging adventure playgrounds.
This is a beautiful spot.
This is a beautiful spot. I think the play equipment looks pretty good, but would love to see some more 'unstructured' play opportunities, such as big logs, large rocks etc. so children can come up with their own play ideas rather than just being 'told' what to do by the playground design. I also think it needs to be developed to need no spraying or mowing - choosing the right species of plants to be hard-wearing and beautiful and eliminating expensive, unnecessary ongoing maintenance. I see plenty of playground design in the plans but no landscape planting plans - why not? Who will decide what gets planted? We need to design public places from the outset so they do not commit ratepayers to ever-increasing maintenance costs.

great to see the beginnings of what could become Southland's destination playground for people of all ages and abilities. Hopefully be lots of seating areas and shade and drinking fountains available.
Pleased to see something progressive being done about this area.
Pleased to see something progressive being done about this area. Like option 2 for the play attraction piece as it can used by lots of children at once. The concept plan looks great.
Dogs in playgrounds are an ongoing concern, some more signage would be useful (even though ignored by some).

Riverton needs somewhere for kids to ride bikes skateboards and scooters. The skate park is pretty good but not quite big enough on a busy day and not all kids are confident enough to use it. A pump track would be perfect to keep the kids (and big kids) entertained. Only have to go to the park in Te Anau or henleys farm on the way into Queenstown to see how popular they are. A town like riverton needs a place to ride. The photo uploaded is of the Raglan pump track. You should see how many people enjoy that on a good day. Busy as

How about a boating pond where model boats can be sailed similar to the boating pond at the model engineers in Invercargill.
