Friendly Bay Balance Park

Friendly Bay, Oamaru

In February 2019, Numat opened New Zealand’s first Balance Park at Friendly Bay Playground in Oamaru (click here read the press release).

Balance Parks are designed and produced by Norwegian company Rampline AS,  bringing together a range of balance play elements – slacklines, balance balls, steppers, mini-trampolines and playground safety surfacing – to offer a challenging balance course for kids (and adults) to test their balance skills on. Numat is the exclusive supplier and installer of Balance Parks in New Zealand.

The park was designed by Creo’s Larissa Rose using a dark colour palette and Pour’n’Play ‘cogs’ to fit the surrounding ‘Steam Punk’ theme.
