The Invercargill City Council has more than 70 playgrounds, most of which are found in small neighbourhood parks.

Fitness cube among new playground attractions

Image of Wagner Street playground updates

A new fitness cube at the Wagner Street Playground provides children with climbing and overhead activities.  It includes a monorail that offers movement similar to a flying fox and a basket swing offers fun for all ages and abilities. The Wagner Street and Waiau Street entrances  are connected to the playground by a new path and a low timber barrier has been erected along the frontage to keep vehicles off the grass.

Playgrounds are designed and maintained to New Zealand Safety Standards requirements, and the Council undertakes monthly and biennial safety checks to verify this. If you discover play equipment that has been damaged or appears unsafe, immediately contact the Parks Department by (03) 219 9070 or email.
