Learn to Ride Track, Avondale

106 Architects provided a professional design and project management service for Auckland Council’s Whau Local Board, as part of a long-term community development plan.

The vision was to re-activate an existing site and turn it into an “activity hub”. A “Learn to Ride” zone was the first stage for this community development. The idea was to provide multiple areas and zones for passive and formal learning activities.


  • Resene Colour Award Winner – Landscape category.
  • Unused sports surfaces were sustainably repurposed into active recreation play space.
  • An informal play area development was chosen as a more effective approach compared to restrictive traditional rectangular box field designs.
  • The use of colour and pattern weave character into the play spaces reflective of the local community stories and culture.
