Kuaka Park, Waterview

Kuaka Park playground has emerged from the former Saxon Reserve in the course of the upheavals of the Waterview Connection of State Highway 20. Climbing structures assembled from dodecahedral shapes.

Kuaka is the Maori name for the godwit (limosa lapponica), a migratory bird which visits New Zealand during our summer and then returns to Alaska to breed in their summer. (It is unlikely that a godwit has ever been seen in the closer vicinity of the park…).
