Hi.

 

Bunnings near me has a large area in their carkpark, which for various entirely reasonable reasons they don't want me to use off peak to have a play with my radio controlled car in, but I wondered if anyone knew of public spaces or somewhere else I could take it in central Auckland?

 

Needs to be pretty large, and ideally have not too many pillars :-)

 

 

 

Cheers

Handle9: Indoor or outdoor?

 

Either is fine, though I imagine outdoor polished floors would be rare.

It's not concrete but there is a kids bike and scooter area in the back of Avondale with marked roads etc. It's also got a couple of old netball courts that don't get used.

What about the museum? Also check out victory centre in freemans bay. *EDIT* missed the polished.

Flat polished concrete required? Must be an F1 replica!

On the corner of East Coast rd and Forrest Hill rd on the North Shore. There is a water reservoir that has a flat concrete top, and is almost completely buried (top is approx 1M above the ground level).

I see that someone has even painted a track for RC cars on it.
