Save Ocean Beach

The natural and physical resources of Ocean beach and its adjacent City Dunedin are under threat and you can help!

The bricks are coming off .. the hotel is going up, the character of the esplanade is guaranteed to change drastically .. the implications of such a massive [in scale of the area] development will reveal over the coming years. So with the building permit obviously secured, despite there being an ongoing 'beach emergency' 100 metres away all we can do is watch. see previous blog post on this issue

Change again around the corner in the public playground adjacent to the Southcoast Boardriders clubrooms. I used to play there when I was a child, and I took my children to play there too, always the same old classic playground equipment and probably the last remaining of its genre in Dunedin. Below a series of photos of the reconstruction over the last 6 weeks. (inset, some kind of surfing mechanical bull thing)

I guess if the children can't play on the beach due to an absence of sand, they now have a high tech playground.
