Our Community Events

I'm pleased to advise the new playground construction is scheduled to commence Monday 12 March.

After extensive community consultation at the end of 2017, and feedback from local residents; the Urban Play proposal will be installed.

Given the community interest in this initiative, I would like to take this opportunity to clarify some points that arose during the consultation process:

  • The new playground will be located on the higher level area near the basketball court at the north-west corner of the park.  This area has a number of large trees around its perimeter.
  • The old playground will be removed except for the large A-frame swing which will be retained in its current location.
  • The area of the old playground will be reinstated with new turf except for around the trees.
  • Council Parks Officers have advised that the new playground will be located in a more shady area, and no shade sails will be provided initially.  This will be reviewed upon installation of the equipment, when the impact of shade can be more appropriately assessed.
  • The existing shade sails at the old playground will not be reused because of their age and condition.
