Upgrade works on Daniel Dawson Reserve, Alexandria

Park and playground improvements

We’ll soon start work in Daniel Dawson Reserve in Alexandria to improve the park and playground for everyone to enjoy.

The upgrade includes:

  • new play equipment including a triple swing set, a climbing mound, an embankment slide and a climbing net
  • plants in the playspace to provide a sensory play experience
  • a new shade structure, a playground fence, a sitting wall, picnic tables and seating
  • a new internal loop path within the park
  • new trees and more plants
  • maintaining the open grass and mature trees.

We expect work to start in late July and take around 5 months to complete, weather permitting. Works will take place from 7.30am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday and 7.30am to 3.30pm on Saturday.

You can view the plan of works.

The park will be closed during the works. The nearest playgrounds are:

  • South Eveleigh Playground, Eveleigh
  • Jack Shuttleworth Reserve Playground, Mitchell Road, Alexandria
  • Redfern Community Centre Playground, Hugo Street, Redfern
  • Douglas Street Peoples Park Playground, Redfern.

We will take steps to minimise other impacts. However, there will be some machinery noise and dust.
