Visitors to Mowhanau will have a new attraction to enjoy soon with the addition of a revamped children's playground.
A Wanganui District Council spokeswoman confirmed that the playground would reopen soon, once landscaping and other finishing touches had been completed.
Allan Zohs, a contractor for Playground Centre, said his company's work on the play equipment had recently finished.
Mr Zohs said the old favourites - the pirate ship, the witch's hat and the flying fox - would remain, along with some new additions.
He said the playground would now cater for children of all ages.
"There's a mega swing set, a pirate's tower with a crow's nest, a tube slide, nets and climbing ropes, and a really big see-saw that adults can use too.
"For the littlies, there's a junior tower for them to climb on and a set of little swings."
Mr Zohs said the park would be a great place for kids once it was finished.
"It will be a nice park to play on in the summer - it will become quite an attraction."
Council's senior parks officer Wendy McGhie said the council budgeted $100,000 for replacement equipment, safety surfacing and installation, and a further $5000 for ground work and retaining walls.
