Playgrounds in 32 suburbs across Canberra will receive works

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 Woden, Weston Creek and Molonglo, funding from the ‘Play Spaces Forum’ will be provided for:

  • New Nature Play spaces to be built at Eddison Park, Phillip and near the shops at Farrer.
  • A ‘whole of suburb’ review on Waramanga's and Torrens playgrounds, as two of five suburbs across Canberra to be reviewed.
  • Refresh works, such as repairs and repainting for playgrounds in Curtin, Farrer, Lyons, O’Malley and Stirling.
  • New amenities such as seating or shade for playgrounds in Curtin, Stirling, O’Malley, Lyons and Farrer.
