About this space

Welcome to Te Whare Tākaro (The House of Play, Fun and Movement), where the theme is getting around in a fun, healthy, eco-friendly way while enjoying and learning about the natural environment. Active transport (such as bikes and scooters) and play is celebrated here.

We have regular bike hub and play activities here making Te Whare Tākaro the perfect place to interact with local community and whānau.

This whare is the size of a standard container with plenty of flat surface in front to utilise. The front walls open completely, there are lights inside, and it has access to power. It's the perfect blank canvas to run your activities right next door to Hayman Park.

Find out more about the Manukau whare, which have been repurposed from Queens Wharf containers, at www.ekepanuku.co.nz/manukau/community-whare
