Margaret Mahy Family Playground - Come & play!

MMFP%20logo

The central city spot has proved very popular as people come to check out the newest and coolest playground on the site within Madras, Manchester and Armagh streets, next to the Ōtākaro/Avon River.

More fun and facilities are coming to the Margaret Mahy Family Playground! Soon there will be three new towers and an 8.2m spiral slide to explore and enjoy. Other improvements include a new walkway and better access to the jetty for kayaks and punts. A small area of the playground is currently fenced off for works to take place, but you can still come and play!

Another exciting addition to the playground is the installation of a barbecue area being sponsored by ANZCO Foods. Being developed in the north east corner of the playground the area will include four electric barbecues, food preparation benches, running water and a landscaped seating area for family and friends to meet, cook a meal and enjoy the playground. Work will start soon on the barbecue area and will be ready to use in spring 2016. Read more about the barbecue area here.

Come and Play

This spectacular all-ages, all-abilities playground is named after one of Canterbury's much-loved authors, Margaret Mahy. The unique design also reflects the Canterbury Plains and Port Hills environment.

Plenty of thought and planning has gone into making the playground an amazing place for all. Here's what you'll find:

- Cool playground equipment, like the 4 metre wide-slide and double flying fox.
- Sand play, swings, rockers and a crawl tunnel for toddlers.
- Water cannons, sprinklers and a splash pad with controllable jets.
- Separate activity zones for different age groups.
- Food and beverage retailers - Rollickin' Gelato, Berry Healthy Real Fruit Ice Cream, Mo Coffee and  Bueno Cantina.
- Lawn picnic areas and seating.
- Public toilet, change facilities and shade canopy.
- And plenty more to discover!

The Playground is free to visit and open all day everyday. There is a free car park at 177 Armagh Street.

Squeals of delight and laughter have filled the Margaret Mahy Family Playground since opening in December. Your experiences are important and with the feedback given adjustments have been made already. A fine grit and sealer has been applied to the water play area to make it less slippery, mats and shade are provided for the slide on sunny days and more permanent shade solutions are being considered. Please share your experience below to make the newest, coolest playground even better!

Check out the gallery below to see artist impressions and progress photos of the playground's wetland, forest, plains and coastal areas.

    One of the best adventure playgrounds I've visited... in the world! Great to see such a huge investment in family fun. Good job!

    My 9 year old son has been 7 times and each time we stayed for about three hours. It is amazing and exciting for children .

    Well done to the Christchurch City Council for providing this facilities for children in Christchurch.

    My granddaughter and I visited here last Thursday. We loved the place so awesome to see so much for kids to play on, 10 out of 10 for this.
    Unfortunately there is no shade and with 28 degrees and full sun where could one stand in the shade? I hope this will be remedied shortly so we can make another more comfortable visit.

    Could you tell me what is to be built on the land at the madras street end of margaret maheyplayground? I too think it needs a lot more shade and more drinking fountains but apart from that it is a wonderful playground.

  • Sharyn Gordon said:

    24 01 2016 3:51 p.m.

    Also a separate fenced off area for under 5 s

  • Sharyn Gordon said:

    24 01 2016 3:44 p.m.

    Some sort of tasteful fence around the blocks of three roads with traffic running. Quite dangerous with toddlers or little children. More food and drink stalls. More sun shades would be welcome otherwise well done Christchurch.

    Looking forward to going today...seems like a load of fun and lots of great reviews.One suggestion for kids is maybe on hot days, go down the slide sitting on a sweater or some sort of fabric. 🤔 😄 Mostly recommend sun hats

  • Holly said:

    Going on Saturday but seen of it heard it and it looks and sounds amazing what a great way to remember Margaret Mahy.

    The safety surfaces are rather slippery when they are wet. The park was busy last Sunday even in the rain. Lots of people were coming off the big slide and couldn't stopas there was no grip and it was so slippery. A few minor injuries occurred. We had a great time but all weather non slip surfaces would have made this awesome.

  • Mandy said:

    18 01 2016 9:47 p.m.

    Overall it was a fun playground for kids aged 5+. Please put shades up as it gets really hot in a sunny day.

  • Lynette said:

    18 01 2016 9:58 a.m.

    We took an 8 and 5 year old to the park and they both loved it. As Grandparents we will certainly use it again. Great thing to have in the city.

  • Melb said:

    13 01 2016 3:24 p.m.

    I think this is great, but have to ask who actually designed some of it, a metal slide in the heat is just asking for trouble. Shade is required and should have been supplied before the park was opened. I do not mean to sound ungrateful just wonder if this is actually the finished park or not because it seems lacking in some really basic things.

    Hi there I worked on it grinding the walk ways , it was a great job to be involved in my youngest son is in a wheel chair and Im looking forward to taking him there

  • Paige said:

    12 01 2016 7:28 a.m.

    Amazing job! The playground is so much fun to play on (says the kids) and it's safe too. Great job

  • Kerry said:

    11 01 2016 7:07 p.m.

    Jst very impressed with the playground and also it's suitability for all age groups.For an extremely busy park It was nice to see our Canterbury kids waiting for their turn,being considerate of others and no pushing or bullying that I saw,very impressed:)

  • noor said:

    08 01 2016 6:39 p.m.

    do they have waterslides or swimming pools

  • Jeff said:

    08 01 2016 9:55 a.m.

    Absolutely brilliant. Dunedin City Council will b getting a call from me regarding building one down here. Thanks

  • JB said:

    07 01 2016 12:24 a.m.

    The coffee booth there doesn't do fluffies. At a kids' playground. They were rude too and smirking at me. (Admittedly, I was even ruder back after queuing for 15 minutes, but then again I had to deal with the fallout of a disgruntled child).

    Also, agree with others that the polished concrete + water is a bit of a terrible design flaw that got my son and a few others. Hope they fix that soon.

  • Angela said:

    06 01 2016 10:33 p.m.

    I took my kids to the park yesterday, they loved it. I think I left my sons shoes there they have blue orthotics in them. Who can I contact about if they have been handed in - we are from out of town. I'd love them back :)

  • Future Christchurch Team said:

    Hi Mike, the playground is free to come and play and open all the time.

  • Ian said:

    Funtastic!

  • Mike said:

    05 01 2016 8:01 p.m.

    I take it from the complete lack of information regarding opening hours and entrance costs that it's open 24 hours a day 365 days a year, and is free?

    The park is amazing, best kids park I have ever seen. Will be a regular fixture in our kids schedule for sure :)

    My only worry is vandalism... How is the park protected at night time?

  • David Bull said:

    30 12 2015 1:06 a.m.

    Good effort thus far BUT where are the drinking fountains !!! Not exactly free playground when getting stiffed by the the substandard food offerings in turn who are stiffing us for water.

  • Mary said:

    29 12 2015 5:53 p.m.

    Hi. Is there going to be more added to it or is it complete? Desperately need some shade on slides

  • Mary said:

    29 12 2015 5:39 p.m.

    I heard there is more playground to be built. A second stage. Is this true?

  • craig said:

  • Olivia said:

    28 12 2015 4:20 p.m.

    Amazing playground. The only suggestion I could make is a fenced off area for under 4's. My son just wanted to get in there and play but kept getting bowled over, and in the end got a little overwhelmed. Overall though it is the most amazing playground I have ever seen; wish there was one around when I was a kid.

  • Dawn said:

    28 12 2015 11:03 a.m.

    Looks wonderful and I hope the coffee shop is open when I come down today :)

  • Bruce Roberts said:

    28 12 2015 8:17 a.m.

    Its awesome, however the bins got very full and toilets malfunctioned. Who do we contact for maintenance issues?

  • Kieron said:

    27 12 2015 10:00 p.m.

    I took my two wee girls there today and we had a great time. It was a bit windy so we've resolved to go back again soon. This will get frequent visits from this family :)

  • Bronwen said:

    27 12 2015 5:19 p.m.

    The slide is great fun but gets very hot! How about a shade sail over it? Also, a few seats for adults closer to play equipment would be nice. It is a fun playground though, great to see something finished!!

  • Anna said:

    27 12 2015 12:11 p.m.

    When did the park open

  • Jane said:

    27 12 2015 9:46 a.m.

    Is the big slide metal? It looks like that in he pictures but I hope it's not!

  • Bec said:

    26 12 2015 3:23 p.m.

    The playground is fantastic, were there 3 hours and my daughter was still playing, could easily have spent the whole day there. My only negative comment would be shade in the summer, lots of shade under the trees along the river but shade sails or the like in some parts of the playground would also be nice.

  • Fuzzy said:

    26 12 2015 12:47 p.m.

    Wow

  • Amanda said:

    26 12 2015 11:48 a.m.

    Can adults play as well?

  • Suzie Vesper said:

    24 12 2015 10:24 a.m.

    One small comment - As I said yesterday we loved the playground but my own kids fell a couple of times on the concrete area in the wetlands which is very slick when wet and we saw at least another 10 kids topple as well. One I saw really cracked her head when hitting the concrete. I wondered if there was anything that could be done to make this a little safer as the water toys are brilliant.

  • Future Christchurch Team said:

    24 12 2015 8:59 a.m.

    Hi Gabi, the playground is between Manchester and Madras Streets. You can access the playground car park from Armagh Street.

  • Future Christchurch Team said:

    24 12 2015 8:57 a.m.

  • Suzie Vesper said:

    23 12 2015 4:50 p.m.

  • Tash Beckingsale said:

    03 12 2015 9:44 a.m.

    Will there be anything wheelchair users can use? Eg: swing? Would be lovely if all children and parents can enjoy this playground.

  • vik said:

    17 11 2015 9:31 p.m.

    why not go even further and build something like Rainbow ends that would be orsome, or even something better than that...

  • sue said:

    17 11 2015 10:47 a.m.

    Which Dec is it to be finished, as my experiences with promises of when fixing and building will be finishec is not true,. When will it be Finished Truelly.

  • Mary said:

  • Hamish said:

    Looking great. I hope there are some age limits in place in certain areas with signs, to protect the young kids from being trampled by the bigger kids.

  • Emma said:

    Great keep up the good work.

  • Mark said:

  • Leah said:

    31 08 2015 1:55 p.m.

    I'm sure considerable thought went in to the planning but I have to agree with an earlier comment that there isn't enough stuff to play on. My littlies don't care what the landscaping looks like as long as there are trees to climb and sticks to play with, maybe some dirt or something to dig in. More stuff less garden.

  • LOVENA said:

  • Nancy Robbie said:

    27 05 2015 9:49 a.m.

    That looks great. I was in Sydney on a playground inspectors course approx. 1 year ago and it looks on a par with some of their best playgrounds. I like that the whole environment has been considered and designed rather than just putting pieces of playground equipment on a piece of land. I am looking forward to bringing my kids up to Christchurch to have a play on it when it is built.

  • Future Christchurch Team said:

    19 05 2015 8:35 a.m.

    Hi Evie, We have completed the design but are always looking for great ideas! Perhaps you could write us a letter or draw a picture?

  • Evie said:

  • Jays said:

    23 04 2015 6:12 a.m.

    It looks absolutely beautiful.
    But, there actually doesn't seem to be a lot of play equipment for children there.
    When I take my son to a park, he doesn't care how beautiful the landscaping his, but rather what stuff there is to play on.
    So, by all means make it incredibly beautiful (it looks like it will be), but also add plenty of things to keep kids amused.

  • Future Christchurch Team said:

    26 02 2015 3:29 p.m.

    We have had several containers loads of playground equipment arrived from Europe which is really exciting, and you may have seen some early drainage and electrical works happening on the site.

  • Future Christchurch Team said:

    26 02 2015 3:29 p.m.

    However as is typical in a central city, we have found some soil contamination and so we are currently waiting for samples to confirm the extent before we undertake the necessary remediation and bulk earthworks. Meanwhile, the tender for the main contract works is about to go out to the shortlisted contractors.

  • Future Christchurch Team said:

    26 02 2015 3:25 p.m.

    We agree that Christchurch families deserve these wonderful spaces, and the project team is working hard to deliver it as early a possible, but ensuring it is as special as it should be which is why is sometimes takes longer than we all want.

  • Stevelawrence@me.com said:

    24 02 2015 7:42 p.m.

    Have they even broken ground on this project? What is the big holdup? This city is the pits for kids right now, this is the very least we can get done for them.

  • Justin said:

    24 02 2015 8:50 a.m.

    Nothing is happening, the same as the river precinct, can we have an update please, why is there a hold up, my family can't wait to use this area and it certainly won't be this easter. Christchurch families deserve these wonderful spaces.

    Planning and design of the Playground is well underway. Plans are being finalised, playground equipment is being made and contractors have started work preparing the site with the main contractor scheduled to start this summer. The first elements of the Playground are expected to open to the public by Easter next year.

    When are they going to start building the playground? I'm hanging out. This was scheduled to start in 4th quarter of 2014. What is the delay.

    I can't wait for the playground to be completed in 2015. I hope everyone has lots of fun on it. I can't wait!

    Looks great. I hope some consideration goes into providing some slackline anchors to appeal to older kids and adults. Not all grown ups like to 'sit back and supervise'. Without the adults the kids won't be there!
    Just take a look at queenstown waterfront as a great example of how slacklining can help to activate space.

    Why don't you do a book theme like down the back of the chair or the lion in the meadow ?

    Please include a splash pad (that operates in summertime) - kids LOVE running through fountains of water that switch on and off

    Utilisation of public transport is impt but please realise that for a busy Mum, getting here will depend on enough cheap, close, parking.

    Wonderful idea - looks as if it will be great. I hope there are some activities for Seniors (there is a dearth of such in the city)

    Wonderful project. Are there any ways for members of the public to get involved or is everything sorted and funded?
