Suitable for all ages
The Rocket Park playground is so called because of the huge rocket shaped tower that dominates the equipment! Inside the rocket, there are 4 levels for kids to climb up and down.
In addition there are swings (including an accessible swing), a climbing course, seesaws and exercise machines suitable for teenagers and adults. There’s also a piece of equipment shaped like a mini castle which is good for younger kids to crawl around, climb on and slide down.
The playground is set within Mount Albert War Memorial reserve and there’s plenty of space for running around and picnics.
TOP TIP: to make your playground experience more enjoyable for everyone, it’s worth popping over the road to Pyrenees French Delicatessen for amazing French pastries, a take away coffee or even lunch. This cafe in an unassuming row of shops, comes highly recommended!
