Upgrade works on Hollis Park Playground, Newtown

New play equipment

We’ll soon start work on an upgrade of the playground at Hollis Park in Newtown to improve access and provide new play equipment and places to sit.

The upgrade includes:

  • a new fenced play area with a multi-play structure for climbing and balancing
  • 2 new slides and a double swing set
  • new play rockers, including the much-loved yellow boat
  • garden trail planting in the playspace to provide a sensory play experience
  • new seating and a small lawn area within the fenced playground
  • new shade trees and shade structures
  • better access into and through the playground.

We expect work to start in July 2020 and take around 6 months to complete, weather permitting. Works will take place from 7.30am to 5.30pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 3.30pm on Saturday.

You can view the plan of works.

The playground will be closed during the works but other parts of the park will stay open.

The nearest playgrounds are:

  • Ernest Wright Playground, Hordern Street, Newtown
  • Goddard Playground, O'Connell Street, Newtown
  • Burren Street Reserve Playground, Erskineville.

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