The opening of the revamped Avalon Park play space brought to close a two year involvement for Playground People but a four year process for the Hutt City Council. The outcome has been described as outstanding and the best play space in New Zealand. Visit Avalon Park and judge for yourself…

We found Dave and the team at Playground People excellent and so helpful right from the start. They helped us plan what would be suitable for us and our community. The response has been fantastic and our children's co-ordination and core strength has increased noticeably within a few months. We would thoroughly recommend Playground People.

The children instantly gravitated towards the chimes and immediately started to experiment and play with the equipment. From junior school to senior school all ages are drawn towards them, and sometimes, teachers will also give them a go.

The Playground People have recently installed a new playground and nature play area for our Year 1-4 students. Students, staff and parents are absolutely delighted with the result. The new play structures are attractive and challenging and the new nature play area has outdoor musical instruments that add a beautiful zen-like atmosphere to the school playground. The Playground People were excellent to work with throughout the process, from the design and planning phase right through to quality installation.

We now have four playgrounds built by the Playground People, over the past 10 years. The equipment is of excellent quality and has wonderful longevity. We would not use another manufacturer here at ACG Sunderland.

Playground People have just installed our fabulous purpose built community playground at Weber. We found them fantastic to deal with, great customer service, nothing was a problem! They listened to our ideas and requests and really took these on board when designing the playground for these country kids. They worked in with us in every respect and we would confidently recommend them to others.
