Playground Upgrades

The Council is upgrading some of the city's play areas and equipment, and would like feedback from local residents on the planned work.

The play areas to be upgraded include:

  • Crawford Green play area, Miramar
  • Quebec Street play area, Kingston
  • Surrey Street play area, Wilton

Feedback and timeframe

Letters with copies of the draft concept plan for each play area were sent to residents in October and feedback was requested.

Work on the play areas is expected to start in March 2014, and to take 6 weeks.
