Matakana Playground Open

The Matakana Playground was officially opened by the Rodney Local Board at the beginning of the month. Auckland Council made the opening a fantastic community event with a blessing of the playground by local hapu Ngati manuhiri and speeches, followed by a free sausage sizzle and drinks. It is fantastic to see this wonderful community project finally open – delightful sounds of children playing can now be heard back at the historic heart of the township where the tidal river meets the waterfall.
