PLAYGEAR by Otago Engineering

When PlayGear first opened its doors, playgrounds were a patch of grass with a set of swings, a slide and a see-saw. Now, 60 years on they are a place of fun and adventure, providing opportunity to test children's skills, build confidence and develop motor skills and coordination.

Our playground equipment is robust using long-lasting materials such as powder-coated galvanised steel and rotationally moulded plastics. What we make, we make to last. Our clients include many schools and local authorities who recognise the need for strong, durable and safe play equipment.


Junior and Senior Adventure Playgrounds

PLAYGEAR adventure playgrounds can be designed to suit your budget and space requirements. We offer a range of platforms to support a range of slides and lots of different fun filled, activities. We have an exciting range of climbing equipment, including Rock Walls, Grapple Climb, Chain Net Climb, Climbing nets etc. We also manufacture and install Fitness stations, either connected or stand alone. We manufacture and install the traditional flying fox where children have endless amounts of fun gliding along the high strength cable, while comfortably sitting on a pommel set.....suitable for all ages.

Our latest project

New indoor playground for Mosgiel Food Court

The challenge was to design and manufacture a colourful, fun filled playground, custom made to fit in a small area. This Playgear equipment by Otago Engineering includes a tandem slide, activity panels, pinball and O's and X's, viewing platform with binoculars, bubble panel, submarine with periscopes. The wall is wrapped in a large underwater themed vinyl decal and adds to the fun in this indoor play area. All designed to meet the the current New Zealand playground safety standards and manufactured and installed right here in Dunedin.

I'm sure this exciting new play area will bring losts of vistors to the new Mosgiel Food Court.
