Nga Iwi Primary School, year five student Jazz Luamanu Iakopo leaves her mark.

Children from Nga Iwi Primary School in Māngere are leaving their mark on the new playground at the nearby Windrush Reserve.

Last year the youngsters helped design a playground for the reserve, just one of the components of the Te Ara Mua – Future Streets project, now under construction. 

The children recently visted the reserve to lay handprints in the concrete pathway surrounding the playground and will soon paint them an array of colours – a great way for them to get involved and excited about the project.

Te Ara Mua – Future Streets aims to make streets around the Māngere Town Centre safer and more connected.  Works includes shared paths, cycle lanes, traffic calming, wayfinding signage, planting, new LED lighting trhough adjoining parks and street tree improvements.

The project is a partnership between Ministry of Business, Innovation, and Employment, Māngere-Ōtāhuhu Local Board, Auckland Transport and NZTA.
