Fun in the sun was the way on Auckland Anniversary Day as crowds gathered to play at Takapuna Beach Playground on the public holiday. Families, partners and friends enjoyed the scorching temperatures at the showcase play site, which local grandparents Jackie and Chris Reeve kickstarted and Channel and the Takapuna community rallied behind to make a reality. With equipment for all ages, the playground has been a super popular attraction with Shore locals and visitors to the area over the long hot summer. Channel dropped by on Auckland Anniversary Day to meet some of the people enjoying all it has to offer. Happy days!
