Keith Park All Abilities Playground is the first (and only) recognised ‘All Abilities’ playground fully funded by Auckland Council and the Local Community Board. It opened to the public in 2020, and in that same year won the Playground Of The Year Award.
Keith Park Playground is located at the entrance of the Pahurehure Inlet overlooking the Manukau Harbour. Te Pua/Keith Park itself is a recreational area that attracts boating, fishing, swimming and picnics. The Maori name, Te Pua, meaning ‘the blossom’ was the name given to a chieftainess of the local iwi, Te Waiohua.
This playground is suitable for children, parents or caregivers in wheelchairs. It has anti-slip terrain used throughout the playground, communication boards, and sign language used around the pathways. There are 3 different swing options, a wheelchair accessible carousel, trampoline and much more.
Other Accessible Amenities
The playground has two accessible toilets, one has a baby change table and the other has an adult/child change table. The Exeloo designed toilets have an easy push button with Braille to automatically open the door.
There are five mobility parks located to the left as you drive in. The carpark terrain is flat and tar-sealed and dedicated for the playground and picnic areas beside the waterfront.
