What we’re doing

The upgrade includes:

  • new play equipment with a triple swing set, play structure with slides and see-saw
  • plants in the play area for sensory play, a balance beam and steppers
  • new fitness station with upper and lower body equipment
  • new shade structure, playground fence, sitting wall and seating
  • wider footpath to Samuel Street
  • new trees and plants
  • maintaining the open grass and protecting mature trees.

We will take steps to minimise other impacts. However, there will be some machinery noise and dust. Parking on Campbell and Samuel streets may be temporarily impacted while we deliver materials and equipment. There will be footpath access at all times.
