LOCAL children can now get down to the serious business of play at the newly upgraded St Aubyn’s Square Reserve playground.
Glenorchy Mayor Kristie Johnston said this was one of the City’s older playgrounds in need of an overhaul.
“The old pine bark was creating issues with maintaining safe levels, so new equipment has been installed, along with rubber soft fall, which will be easier to contain in the playground and better than the previous pine bark,” she said.
“The team who worked on this upgrade spent from mid-December last year through to early February to create this safe and inviting space for residents and particularly children.
“I would like to thank residents for their patience during the course of this project and I look forward to seeing people use this great little reserve.”
New play equipment includes a slide, climbing net, tic tac toe board, fireman’s pole, cargo net and off the ground cubby house.
A gravel pathway was previously installed around the reserve and residents and visitors can look forward to future additions over the next few months.
This includes seating and tree planting, making the reserve ideal for play, exercise and recreation.
The reserve is also dog friendly for dogs on leashes.
