Some of the play items in Harrington Park in Riccarton are due for renewal. We are keen to understand how people are using the park and what they would like to do in the park, so that we can then put together a landscape plan for the park.

Project status: Open for feedback
Open for feedback: 8th October 2018 - 29th October 2018

What is this project about?

Some of the playground equipment at Harrington Park in Riccarton is due for renewal.  In order to help us put together an initial landscape plan we would like to know who is using the park, how the park is being used and what type of activities the community might like to do in the park.

What is due for renewal?

Not every item in the park is up for renewal.  The cricket net, basketball court and the bulldozer will remain in their existing locations and the cricket and basketball items will have minor repairs where required.

The bulldozer will remain and is not part of the renewal

Come and talk to us

You can come and meet the project team, ask us any questions and drop off or fill in a survey with us. 

Event:  Riccarton Community Day

Date:  Saturday 20 October 2018

Time:  1 pm to 4 pm

Location:  Harrington Park, Peverel Street, Riccarton

What will happen with the information I provide?

The results of the survey will help us put together an initial landscape plan for the park, which we will then ask for further feedback on.  We may then make further changes to the landscape plan following community feedback.  Then this plan will be presented to the Waipuna/Halswell-Hornby-Riccarton Community Board for their approval.

When will the park be ready for use?

If the landscape plan is approved by the Community Board, we will be aiming for the work to be completed by the end of 2019.  This is dependent on contractor availability and weather conditions.
