As part of our investigation into the recreational facilities in Avondale our class went on a trip to Olympic Park. Although officially part of Waitakere City we thought the facility close enough to be considered local.
Olympic Park is a fairly new park that has been developed on the border of Avondale and New Lynn. It is a big, interesting park that is for people of all ages. It's a public park.
Olympic park has a big fun climbing net. There are toilets at the park. At the bottom of the park is a sand pit with a playground in it. Near the playground are two slides. There are some nice tables and seats so you can eat. Also at the park are some swings. The park has some spinners that lots of children like. Down a little further is a Basketball court for bigger kids. Around the park is a big pathway that adults can do their exercise on. Near the toilets are two bridges.
