Leaps and bounds ahead for teen ninjas
A ninja play area will be built at Heritage Park, creating a fun way for local teenagers to get active in their community.
The Millwood Park course will feature 10 obstacles to challenge strength, agility and coordination.
It will also encourage problem solving skills as people navigate the course.
Councillor Jacob Heremaia says the obstacle course will be a drawcard for local youth.
“I can already picture the park full of people climbing, swinging, jumping and running along the equipment on the course,” he says.
“The early plans I’ve seen for the ninja play area include obstacles that are both innovative and challenging, which will no doubt produce some awe-inspiring moves.
“I think it will be a really popular addition to the area.”
The obstacle course will be built near the park’s picnic shelter and is due for completion by the end of 2022.
