It opened today. Sounds like a fun place to take the little (and bigger!) kids.

ryanm2, Dec 23, 5:45pm
it is on the east side (of avon river).

spunkeymonkey, Dec 23, 5:46pm
no actually in the east side itself - not the city

Cos it would get tagged, smashed and burnt within 4 days.

bigbadfun, Dec 24, 4:03am
Dunno - they could keep the slides nice and slippery.

teee heee teee heee

actually, i think its more that in the event of a minor shake, it would sink .

lizziep823, Dec 29, 8:21am
ps) been there with niece and nephews and it was fantastic. filled with laughter, and people of all ages, enjoying the space there - from babies, to grandparents, and quite a few teenagers also having a play .

it was the one thing i was looking forward to of the rebuild, and I'm happy I've been in chch long enough to see it

Its really good, exactly what a city should have. Can't believe all the petty complaints on here. As to parking, its a city park, they don't have parking. Try walking a few blocks.

Went today, it's great, my only complaint apart from the fact it was really busy, was lack of shade, where are the shade cloths? Will be great in 15 years when the trees grow bigger, but there needs to be shade for people who don't want to roast in the sun.

My wee 4yr old granddaughter loves it - glad it is central so it can be accessed by families across the city. While the rebuild is going on we all need a place to remind us to play and something where everyone can have a turn is a great idea - a great investment in families and children is always going to have a positive return with happier children

My children weren't bothered about going - but especially wanted to get to the art gallery.

Had the exact same thoughts when I went past and a huge crowd there, then seen the river and thought holy f. How are people going to keep an eye on a few kids, when at home, they must have a fence around their pool.

We had a look at it the other day & yes it was crowded ,BUT it was a Public Holiday & I wonder if it will be a 9 day wonder ? We commented on the fact with all the sawdust if someone has to check it each morning for broken glass etc & my husband said wonder if homeless sleep in the tunnels ?
