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.

Progress

We asked for public feedback on the proposed changes and this feedback closed on 10 October 2016. We're considering changes as a result of the feedback and drawing up final plans. We'll then order playground equipment and book the work in to install  the equipment - most likely January or February 2017. We'll make the updated plans available before this time.

Allington Road play area - proposed changes

The play area is categorised as one of our basic local playgrounds, which typically cater for young children and feature a set of modular play equipment. 

The space is limited in size but a small area has been provided as a grassed open free space.

The daft plan suggests the following:

  • new play equipment:
    • swings
    • a climbing structure with a slide
    • a spinner / carousel
    • see-saws
  • safety surface
  • new seats
  • edge fencing
  • planting for shade.

The Council has budgeted to spend $51,000 on this project.
