A fantastic series of playgrounds in Avalon Park, Lower Hutt. The Park is huge, with a pond, skate park and lots of great tracks. There’s a fenced in playground for pre-school age children and then another playground with more advanced equipment. The park makes for a lovely setting.
Petone Recreation Ground
Old fashioned but functional. Has a great wooden fort with a fun spiral slide and a fenced-in toddlers playground.
A fantastic playground for all ages with lots of boat-themed equipment. It isn’t fenced in though so watch the busy road nearby. The miniature trains run on Sundays (link).
Civic Gardens, Lower Hutt
A gorgeous little playground tucked behind the municipal buildings in Lower Hutt. Good range of equipment. Includes a tractor (!), swings (including bucket swings) and a bird aviary. Nice spot for a picnic. View Map
