Upgrade works for Ethel Street Playground, Erskineville

Project Status: Planned

Why we’re doing this

We developed a concept plan for the park upgrade based on your feedback from our consultation in late 2020.  We then modified the design and in early 2021 asked the community for feedback. We used this feedback to refine the design, which Council approved in June 2021.

What we’re doing

The upgrade includes:

  • retaining the mature trees, adding more understorey planting and increasing and improving the grass area
  • refurbishing the existing park benches and providing a new communal bench
  • replacing the swing and providing new nature play opportunities
  • improving the barrier edge and bollard protection around the park and providing a low fence
  • adding a plinth to accommodate a rolling program of public art works
  • adding a new kerb ramp to improve access
  • adding traffic calming measures including a speed hump and planted median strip to improve safety.
