The proposed Destination Playground looks super, it will be an ideal play area for children and families. Two questions: Will the existing play equipment (installed last year) be incorporated into the new scheme? I am interested in more information about the dog agility area adjacent to Freyberg Avenue. Will this include fixed obstacles? I sincerely hope this area will not be fenced. The Park Island dog agility area would surely be sufficient in this area. There is an empty fenced area across Prebensen Drive next to Cato Road near the old cemetery that could be used for dog training.

Plans look amazing! Hope to see some of the planting incorporated within the playground area as it would soften the park structures also the parkland and structures seem to be able to provide a natural environment while providing stimulation. Great to see the will be exploring to be had within the playground not just ON the playground

Why was the planning for the park done by a company whose nearest office to Napier appears to be in Hamilton? Why was an Australian company used to do the plans for the toilet block? What happened to the NCC and HB's desire to promote economic development in the Bay?"" You talk the talk, how about walking the walk and investing back into the community that pays for all this.

I love that you have listened to our suggestions. This looks to be a year round playground for all ages. I especially like that you have considered all abilities so that a greater sector of the community can enjoy this valuable green space. This is so much more than a playground - it is a place for the community to gather and I am interested to see more.

I think a great job has been done so far on the concept drawings, however I still don't believe that there is nearly enough off street parking air-marked for this upgrade. With the increased volume of people wanting to utilize this area especially for bigger events there is still only very limited space and the areas around the park are residential and so roadside parking on already busy roads (ie York Rd) is not ideal. If there could be some more consideration for parking that would be perfect.

i love the look of the plan. the new playgound looks fantastic and extending the train tracks is a great idea. it does need more toilets and disabled toilets so this is great to see it included. i fully agree with this plan and hope it goes ahead soon :)

I would like to see some recycling bins, so glass and plastic can be put into separate bins, this would be a step forward for NCC.

I love that the walkways link. So nice to park at a destination and walk a circuit returning to a carpark. This is why the Pandora pond walk is also so attractive. Perhaps a small walkway pier in to the center of the pond ? With a covered seating area to enjoy sitting and watching the small boats that are often there ? I love watching them but it is incredibly hot in the summer sitting without shade on the edges.
