Randwick Park

Randwick Park in South Auckland is a New Zealand success story – an example of how a community, if properly enabled, can come together and help design and drive forward projects that have the potential to inspire and unify the people around them.
he park was co-designed by local skater Walz Brown, who was invited by community leader David Tims to work alongside Isthmus over the course of a year. Under Walz’s guidance and influence, Randwick’s youth owned the design, providing input through lounge-room design sessions where 3D visualisations were spun around on TV. (Walz has since gone on to become a prominent youth leader and community role model. In 2013 he was recognised as ‘youth worker of the year’.) With the kids engaged the parents followed enthusiastically; and through their involvement they became connected to active community support groups, forming connections that they would not have otherwise.
