PotW – Carrington Park, Carterton

Another fantastic destination playground. Good parking off the road, fenced, a toilet block right there, picnic tables and a band rotunda. A basketball court, a skate bowl, adult exercise equipment and a large sports field out the back add to the variety of play available here.

The shade is generous (fantastic on a hot wairarapa summers day), and the play equipment is in good condition. The separately little kids zone is amazing if you have runners. The main play space being at the back of the park, away from the road, makes it surprisingly quiet for its location alongside the state highway. Bring a picnic and hang out for a while. Or pop across the road to the supermarket for something to eat (although be warned, the road is busy and it can take a while to get across!).

We stop in Featherston a lot, so don’t stop here nearly so often, which is a shame, as I think its a truly awesome park.
