Two Hamilton playgrounds get makeover

Installation of new play equipment at two Hamilton City Council-owned parks began this week - at Donny Park in Chartwell and Ashurst Park in Te Rapa.

Council's parks and open spaces manager Sally Sheedy says contractors will install a new rotating cargo net, Diabolo junior play unit, a spring-loaded rocker, plus what is known as an aeroskate at Donny Park.

At Ashurst Park, the work is the second phase of a playground upgrade which began in late 2011.

"We're installing a new 50-metre flying fox, along with a swing set which includes a basket seat swing," Miss Sheedy says.

Work is expected to be completed on March 1.
