Playgrounds & Youth Facilities


Timaru District currently has 41 children's playgrounds spread throughout the four main urban areas and some others in smaller communities.

These playgrounds are generally located within 800 metres or 10 minutes walk from residences within Timaru, Temuka, Geraldine and Pleasant Point.

Youth facilities include skate parks, BMX facilities and a confidence course.

With most of these facilities car parks, toilets and lighting are not provided unless they are sited in a major park. This is because most of these activities are for youngsters and the majority of playgrounds are in neighbourhood parks where people can walk from their homes.

Our playgrounds are smokefree.
