We completed the construction in March 2021.

About the project

We based the improvements to the playground on the feedback we received from the community. This includes:

  • The well-loved double swing set, including an infant seat and a senior strap seat, retains its existing location in a cosy nook in the corner of the park.
  • A new and improved mound that interacts with the landscape providing an adventure hill, a mound slide, bold ground cover plants and part of the ‘circuit’ of the play space.
  • An upgraded train cubby along with a log carriage providing opportunity for imaginative play.
  • A variety of nooks for children to gather.
  • Interactions with nature, balancing and hopping among the trees, rocks and logs to delight and challenge children of all ages and their carers. 
  • Increased access with paved picnic and play surfaces suitable for users with limited mobility.

Other amenities include:

  • new play equipment and nature play opportunities
  • improved accessibility 
  • renewal of park amenities
  • new landscaping.
