Development Christchurch Limited is seeking feedback and ideas on what will be New Brighton’s brand new Beachside Playground
In November 2016, Development Development Christchurch Ltd (DCL) asked the community for feedback on the proposed hot salt water pools and Beachside Playground.
In December 2016, Christchurch City Council approved $8.03m funding for the Beachside Playground and coastal protection works. This funding will help the New Brighton surf life saving club to rebuild as part of the development.
Following feedback in November 2016, we have been working with local school pupils to hear first-hand what our young experts would like in their new playground and this has helped develop this concept design.
There are three distinctive play zones — a water-play and splash pad zone, a dry play zone, and a toddlers’ zone. We are inviting community feedback on these three concepts until Sunday 23 July. Please note that this design does not include the hot salt water pools as this project has only just received funding. However, engagement on the concept design for the hot salt water pools, located near the Beachside Playground, will happen soon and we look forward to hearing your feedback on this exciting development.
This is a concept of the proposed playground, which includes:

We are giving your whale a facelift and reusing it as an integral part of the water play fun.

From our conversations with the community, the provision of shading, seating, and protection from the wind is extremely important. We have taken this on board and there will be plenty of seating, with integrated shade and wind protection features. In addition, we will be sculpting the landscape and adding special structures to make the playground a pleasant environment all year round.
Your feedback will be used to further develop the playground design. at the same time, we are working with The Council and with Environment Canterbury to obtain the necessary consents to allow the playground construction works to commence later this winter.
When construction starts we will need to use the land where the playground is now, so we will need to close it for some time. We hope the excitement of the new playground makes up for any inconvenience during this time.
