Project Status: Under review
What we’re doing
We plan to upgrade the Douglas Street park and playground in Redfern.
We’ve developed a concept plan for the park based on your feedback from our consultation in mid-2021.
The proposal for Douglas Street park and playground includes:
- relocating the playground equipment to increase space for everyone
- making the ramp wider and less steep to improve access to the park
- a new play structure that includes a slide, climbing wall, activity panels, shopfront, rubber softfall and steps for toddlers
- nature play, including timber steppers and balance beams
- double swing, hopscotch and trampolines
- a new grass area, boundary plants, bubbler and seating.
As part of the proposal, we will retain the existing mature trees and plant more shrubs. We will remove 4 cocos palms and 2 small pencil pine trees to improve access to the park. They will be replaced with 3 new trees along the boundary.
Why we’re doing this
This is part of our parks upgrade program where over the next 10 years we will upgrade more than 60 parks across the City of Sydney area, from small pocket parks to larger local parks.
We’re asking local community groups and residents for their feedback on the concept design. We’re interested in understanding who uses the current playground, what works and what doesn’t. We’d also like to hear any ideas you have for the new playground.
We will report all feedback and design changes to Council, and we will continue to a detailed design. We will keep you updated on the progress of this project.
