Playground gets sign off

Warkworth Lions have finally confirmed that construction of a playground at Lucy Moore Memorial Park will begin this year once fine weather arrives. The playground, to be built at the end of Baxter Street, was originally set to be finished in June last year, but was delayed after extensive consultation and resource consent difficulties. Last month, the required consent was approved, meaning four in-ground trampolines and two parallel flying foxes will be established once the ground has dried out. The project is a joint venture between Lions and the Rodney Local Board.
