More upgrades come to Glenorchy’s playspaces

Multiple new and renewed Glenorchy playspaces are now available to community members thanks to the city council’s Playspace Renewal program.

Locals can enjoy playspaces on Chandos Reserve, Berriedale, Alroy Court Rosetta and the International Peace Park.

Further works have begun to upgrade playspaces in Pitcairn Street Reserve, Montrose, Barossa Road, Glenorchy and Battersby Drive Claremont.

The City of Glenorchy has approximately 44 playspaces, an average of one playspace per 1090 residents.

The upgrades were supported by the Federal Government with $1.5 million handed down to support the vital work.

“Safe child play areas that are fun and which inspire creative play are also spaces where families can connect with other families and are critical community building assets,” acting Mayor Sue Hickey said.

“The council recognises that the community is calling out for improved playspaces in our city and we are working on providing playgrounds which can support and enrich our growing community.”

Tasmanian Senator Carol Brown said the Playspace Renewal program had a positive impact on local communities.

“I am proud of the role the Albanese Government has had on improving the playgrounds across Glenorchy and promoting a safe and exciting space for children to play, socialise and grow together.”

Contracts have been awarded for works on Roseneath Reserve, Austins Ferry, Lutana Woodlands, Lutana and Cooinda Park West Moonah in the coming months.

Nineteen playspaces have been upgraded in the last few years with six still in progress.
