CPlay is a community-led volunteer group that collaborated with Timaru District Council, Arowhenua (mana whenua), the Aoraki Foundation charitable trust, experts, contractors, and the local community to develop an inclusive, destination playground at Caroline Bay in Timaru, South Canterbury. Through extensive consultation and a $3 million budget raised via community contributions, grants, and council support, the 5 year project was completed in December 2023 with the opening of a vibrant play space catering to all ages and abilities. The playground provides fun, challenging, and meaningful opportunities for imaginative play that promote fitter, healthier bodies and minds. Everyones efforts, and the completed playground was recognized with the 2024 Playground of the Year (over $500k budget) award from Recreation Aotearoa.
