Auckland is our playground

Are you aged 13 - 18 and keen to get active and have fun with friends?

#AKLPLAY is a free initiative for youth where we offer community spaces for non-structured (free time) active play and sports. 

Our unique environment provides a space to motivate and empower young people to "give it a go" - we want you to try new skills, meet new friends and have fun. We encourage creativity and imagination through play to help develop your physical, cognitive and emotional strength and team building skills in a fun and social way.

There's no need to register, just come along and join in the fun!

#AKLPLAY is funded by Auckland Council
