Welcome to the Caroline Bay Playground in Timaru – designed for a range of ages, stages, sizes and abilities, to inspire inclusive and imaginative play.

Come and play at the Caroline Bay's fun and free playground. Our goal was to help everyone play together, encouraging social interaction, physical activity, and mental stimulation. As well as providing options for the younger children, the adventurous can also seek a range of challenge to stimulates both physical and mental activity. 

The playground design was inspired by the Caroline Bay environment, Māori and European stories, history, and heritage.
