Safer play spaces for little Kiwis

Partially Fenced Playgrounds

This page collates several Partially Fenced Playground lists, organised on a geographical basis:

Kiwi Play Safe has not visited all of the Partially Fenced Playgrounds. In many cases quotes about specific playgrounds have been provided by the parents who have nominated them, and any relevant personal opinion by Kiwi Play Safe is noted as such.

The Partially Fenced Playgrounds are often fenced on two or three sides. Parents who have nominated these playgrounds believe that the playground in question should be fully fenced, due to a nearby hazard. A typical example of a Partially Fenced Playground is a beach playground that is fenced towards the road, but open towards the beach.

As with the Playgrounds of Concern, Partially Fenced Playground might well be wonderful places to play – the quality of their equipment is not being discussed. Partially Fenced Playgrounds are listed because, in the opinion of the nominating parents, their partial fencing does not provide a safe space for young children to play.

Although Partially Fenced Playgrounds might be reasonably expected to provide some degree of safety and security, Kiwi Play Safe accepts no liability for playgrounds on these lists that do not live up to expectations. If you visit a Partially Fenced Playground and discover that the fencing is damaged or no longer secure, please alert the relevant council and ask them to remedy it. And please contact Kiwi Play Safe, so the playground’s details can be edited accordingly.

Finally, please remember that caregivers who take their children to Partially Fenced Playgrounds must still provide suitable care and supervision at all times.

If you know of a Partially Fenced Playground that has been omitted, please contact Kiwi Play Safe with the relevant details (specific location; why you believe the playground should be included, etc).
