Millwater playground opens

The Croix Reserve playground on Bonair Crescent in Millwater was officially opened on Friday, May 3.
While the playground has traditional features such as swings, slides and a rope climber, the project's marketing consultant Warren Frogley says fitness areas and half courts have been added as well.
“While there are already several children's playgrounds in Millwater, this one caters to a wider age group,” he says.
The reserve also includes public toilets, water fountains and picnic tables. While the Croix Reserve was purchased by Auckland Council in January last year, Millwater developers WFH Properties paid for the $2.1 million project and is responsible for maintenance for the first two years.
The reserve is named after one of the children of the Grut family, who were French settlers that farmed where the reserve now stands. Many of the roads in the area follow the French theme.
