Type of Report:

Document ID:

Reporting Officer/s & Unit:

Rebecca Ainsworth, Marketing Manager

 

1.1   Purpose of Report

To consider a range of names for the new playground at Anderson Park and select a preferred option.

 

 

Officer’s Recommendation

The Strategy and Infrastructure Committee:

a.     Consider a selection of names that the community has provided for the new playground at Anderson Park;

b.     Consider the site visit undertaken with members of the Māori Consultative Committee; and

c.     Select and adopt a preferred option.

d.     That a DECISION OF COUNCIL is required urgently due to the opening of the new playground at Anderson Park being scheduled before the next Council meeting.

 

Chairperson’s Recommendation

That the Council resolve that the officer’s recommendation be adopted.

1.2   Background Summary

The playground at Anderson Park is due to open to the public on Sunday 22 July and a name is required that suits the playground, refers to its themes, and can appear on signage and in collateral.

The playground has been designed with the following themes or ideas;

·     This playground is a place for all ages and abilities. It has been designed so that adults and children can play together and make memories – equally, children can explore at their own pace and challenge themselves as they go.

·     There is bird theme throughout the playground; including bird-themed sculptures by artist Rick Terstappen, a ‘nest’ up high near the tower for children to sit and the flying birds around the tower. With the abundance of tall trees around the park and near to the playground, a child could have a feeling of being up in the treetops with the birds.

·     There are high and low areas for children to explore.

·     The playground is designed to be visited many times due to the abundance of experiences and equipment provided.

The history of Anderson Park is extensive. It once was a marshland food source for Māori, a racecourse, emergency field hospital and community recreational park.  The park continues to serve our community in many ways.

·     The park was once a salt water marsh providing an invaluable food source for Māori.

·     The park was once home to the Napier Park Racing Club from the mid 1850’s. The last race meeting was held in 1960.

·     After the 1931 Hawke’s Bay Earthquake the Napier Park racecourse was taken over to serve as an emergency field hospital.

·     In 1963 Haskell Anderson made a bequest of £20,000 to Napier City Council to establish the J.N.Anderson Family Endownment Fund for tree planting.  This fund was later used in the development and planting of what is now the city’s largest recreational park.

1.6   Options

The naming of the Anderson Park playground offers the opportunity to recognise the uniqueness of the space and the integration between the play area with the park. A short list of options has been provided that reflects on the theme of the playground and the connection to the environment, or that connect to the history of the park.

The options available to Council are as follows:

a.     Tīwaiwaka Playground - Known for its friendly ‘cheet cheet’ call and energetic flying antics, the aptly named fantail (or tiwaiwaka) is one of the most common and widely found native birds in New Zealand

b.     Te Kohanga – Nest a structure or place made or chosen by a bird for laying eggs and sheltering its young

c.     Roharoha Playground – Meaning to stretch, flutter or flap. Related to children, play, birds and nature.

d.     Te Kāhui – Meaning a flock of birds or where people flock together

e.     Haskell Anderson Playground – Acknowledging the Anderson Family for his bequest in 1963

f.     Anderson Playground – No naming of the playground as it is encapsulated in the overall park.

 

1.7   Development of Preferred Option

No option is recommended as each offer an opportunity to recognise the uniqueness of the Destination Playground.
