In 1959 Onna Joustra designed a playground for Memorial Park that was submitted to a Borough Council competition by the Tauranga Jaycees. The playground includes a statue of Humpty Dumpty, a favourite nursery rhyme. The children's playground officially opened on 19 December 1959. This colour photograph of Humpty Dumpty was taken in December 2016 whilst a Council worker was preparing him for a new coat of paint. Photograph Credit: Margaret Harper.
