A Possible Site for a New Playground

Mark Smith, Darren O'Leary and myself met with a playground stockist who has done refurbishments to our playground.
This was to get an idea of cost and a suitable site.
The possible site of Rimu block has been eliminated due to Ministry restrictions and lack of sun during winter. Below is a picture of a proposed site near the back of the hall and swimming pool.
Its a unused area that could look better with some planting, paths and play equipment. Infact you can still see the old abandoned maypole still there. It would be great to put in a flying fox, some tunnels and slides over this bank.

In ballpark figures we are talking about $80,000 for playground equipment without any site development ie retaining walls and landscaping. There is a lot of scoping that has to be done if we are going to apply for some grants funding.
