This is a super-quick post to wish you all Happy New Year! I hope you’re enjoying some decent weather in your part of the country, and have had the chance to explore new playgrounds near you.


I have big plans for Kiwi Play Safe this year, starting from this coming week: I’m going to finally collate and share all of the great playground recommendations (and the list of playgrounds that aren’t so great). And I’m going to start wading through the Auckland Council’s Local Board plans to get a better sense of its overall attitude towards playground design, as well as the plans from various councils around the country. I’m also intending to make contact with some Auckland Council personnel directly, to get answers about how and why we can get more playgrounds fenced for our little kids. I’m also determined to update this blog on a weekly basis, which will force me to keep my momentum going.

Stay tuned!
