Playgrounds in 32 suburbs across Canberra, including Belconnen, will receive upgrades.

22 January 2019

Canberra kids and families will soon benefit from new and improved playgrounds across our city.

A group of Canberra parents and carers came together in 2018 as part of a ‘Play Spaces Forum’, where they discussed and deliberated on playgrounds.

Their work has resulted in a range of new playground initiatives planned across our city.

In Belconnen, funding from the “Play Spaces Forum’ will be provided for:

  • A ‘whole of suburb’ review on Higgins' playgrounds, as one of five suburbs across Canberra to be reviewed
  • New amenities such as seating or shade to be built in Macgregor, Latham, Dunlop, Page, Kaleen and Florey
  • A new nature play space will also be opened at Glebe Park in the City.
