Engaging and playful space
The Navy Museum is a significant and frequently visited attraction. A portion of the Museum grounds offered the potential for a children’s activity/play space and Reset Urban were engaged to produce an overall landscape plan to be developed through to construction. Key objectives for the project were to create a fun and vibrant play space, improve connections to surrounding areas, enhance existing features and preserve views of the Waitemata Harbour and Auckland CBD. The children’s play space was developed to be an attractive, safe and colourful play area that incorporated some old Navy artefacts and create a stimulating fun space for 2-5 year old children to play while their parents relax in the adjacent Navy Museum Cafe.
