We’re taking a look at some of Auckland's best playgrounds. This week: Roberta Reserve, 20 Roberta Avenue, Glendowie
Kids of all ages will be begging for another visit after playing at Roberta Reserve's bright and brilliant playground.
There's a wide range of equipment that lets kids to swing, climb, rock, spin, slide and use their imagination.
What's on offer?
There are two climbing frames – one made of rope and one with wood. The larger wooden frame is protected with shade sails and has activities galore in and around it, including a rope net, colourful port-holes, a crawling tube, and a bright green slide.
The rope climbing frame has birds' nests to perch in, perfect for spotting friends off in the distance.
There are swings, of course – for littlies and big kids – and a spinning wheel, too.
The playground is fully fenced for safety.
Plenty of room for games
The reserve itself is on the Tamaki Estuary, close to the water, with a large flat grassy area perfect for kicking a ball around or playing games.
The park includes seating, picnic tables, public toilets and a drinking fountain.
