New playgrounds for Rutherford and Ruka Reserves

27 February 2015

Auckland Council is replacing the playgrounds at Rutherford Reserve (main entrance from Archdall St in Meadowbank) and Ruka Reserve (entrances from Ruka Lane and Taitokerau St in St Johns).

Proposed designs and equipment are shown below. Feedback is welcome – send to by Friday March 6.

Rutherford Reserve

Construction expected to begin in spring with completion expected in December 2015. Note that the flying fox will remain; it is just out of scope for these plans.
