Learn about our CPlay project journey, kindly put together by Creo

This flythrough was put together by The Playground Center to help our community visualise the plan for playspace.

This video was put together by Ash Ronald to help promote the project when we were ready to launch our fundraising campaign.

The Destination CPlay Playground at Timaru's Caroline Bay was opened in December 2023 as Timaru's newest all-inclusive, accessible playground for everyone to enjoy. "Well done to all involved in facilitating this amazing new playground, reducing the barriers to play in the local community."

Timaru’s Caroline Bay used to be known as the Riviera of the South. A wide, sandy beach, it was where Cantabrians would flock (by train) to swim, sunbathe and attend carnivals and concerts. Though it doesn’t quite draw the crowds of ‘Riviera’ times these days, it’s still a beautiful bay, enjoyed by Timaru locals. But it wasn’t always a place of peace, nor of fine golden sand. Rather, Caroline Bay was a place of heaving southerly swells and many a shipwreck. According to Timaru researcher Roselyn Fauth, the story is a good one – and she’s helping plan a new playground to pay tribute to it. Read more here: stuff.co.nz/timarus-caroline-bay-remembering-a-stormy-history
