A new play area now runs alongside Silo Park’s southern edge. The pipes and fittings salvaged from the Bulk Storage Terminal (BST) tanks of the old working Wynyard Wharf have been transformed into bespoke, interactive play equipment. Each pipe holds its own adventure, and adventurers of all ages will have heaps of fun getting stuck in and seeing what they discover.
Some of our favourite features include the Liquid pipe where you can take turns using the leaver to move liquid between the tanks as the pipes light up! The Talking tube that will have you speaking into one end to a friend on the other, the Misting controller that cools you down on these hot summer days, and the double swing set which will have you swinging high above Silo Park!
