Hector Pieterson play area

The play area is intended for children under six years old and accompanying adults.

Play equipment includes a swing, a slide, a distinctive climbing net set in an arch, and a grid for the traditional game of hopscotch.

The play area is dedicated to the memory of Hector Pieterson, a 13-year-old schoolboy shot by a policeman outside Orlando West High School in Soweto, South Africa in 1976.
