Young boy on equipment in playground

Not long until the new playground opens in Gungahlin

12 July 2019

Work is currently underway on a new playground on Gungahlin Place which will provide a great space for kids to get outdoors, exercise and play.

The new design complements the existing playground and also caters for a younger age group.

The new playground will include:

  • a rain garden and dry creek bed for kids to explore
  • soft-fall surfaces to keep kids safe
  • timber walking planks
  • a birds nest style swing, talking tubes, a drum kit and totem poles for all ages and abilities to enjoy
  • new trees and grassed areas, and
  • bike racks and pedestrian paths accessible from nearby shops.

Work is expected to be completed by late 2019. Until then the existing playground will be temporarily closed.
