Tākaro Tararua/ Community Play Trailer

Tararua District Council has partnered with Sport Manawatu to launch Tākaro Tararua. A free community Play Trailer to educate and promote play for tamariki in the district.

Made possible through the Tu Manawa Active Aotearoa fund, Tākaro Tararua was officially launched on Wednesday 17 November as part of National Play Week. This is a new district wide asset to offer tamariki opportunities for free, creative, imaginative play.

The mobile trailer is stocked with a range of play and sports gear including bats, balls, nets, hula hoops, tyres, timber and recycled items which will create hours of fun for Tararua Tamariki. The trailer is available for schools, shows, markets and events throughout our district.

To book the trailer please fill in the booking form below and email it to leahs@sportmanawatu.org.nz
