We discovered our new favourite playground this week! The Lakes Playground in Caslani Lane, Pyes Pa is AWESOME! If you haven’t been, you should – there’s a flying fox, the coolest rope swing, a standup see-saw and a safe toddlers play area with a mini trampoline, tunnels, rocking horse and more!
The playground is located in Tauranga’s new subdivision, The Lakes which is 15 minutes from Tauranga CBD. Next to the playground is Lake Taurikura which has many walkways/cycleways around the lake and vicinity. Across the road is The Lakes Shopping Village where you can get your morning coffee fix at Maude’s Bar & Restaurant or grab something to eat at the various food outlets.
Please note: there are no toilet facilities at the playground, though I have heard that the council will be building one in the near future. Hopefully, they will add picnic tables and a BBQ which this playground is also lacking.

For the older kids there is a mini climbing wall, swing bridge, slide, monkey bars and swings.
