Whanganui Playground Review: Rogers Street

This is part of a series where I review local playgrounds in and around Whanganui.  Non-locals will want to skip this!

If you’ve spent an hour or so at Titoki Wetland, you might want to follow it up with a quick visit to the playground just down the road.

Located on the corner of Rogers St and Titoki Street, the playground is opposite Barsanti Kindergarten.

The playground is small but perfectly formed.  It’s fully fenced as it is located on an island that divides one side of Rogers Street from the other.  It has two regular swings and one bucket swing, a slide and an awesome spider-web climbing frame.


Normally I would have said the frame would be suitable for 4+, but actually 2 year-old Sausage managed it just fine!  (Getting down was an issue…)




  • Fully fenced to corral tots who like to roam
  • Has the basics – swings and a slide
  • Cool spider-web frame!


  • Not heaps of play equipment to keep older kids happy for long
  • No shade
  • No benches for parents to sit on
  • No rubbish bin
