New Cairnduff playground open

4 April 2023|Community News| Off Comments off on New Cairnduff playground open|

Local families are thrilled to be able to play at the much-loved Cairnduff Reserve playspace once again, with the new and improved park opened a month ahead of schedule.

Cairnduff Reserve has been refurbished with exciting, modern play equipment including a coco-wave pendulum swing, a modern multi-unit, and an accessible carousel which encourages inclusivity of play.

As part of the Glenorchy City Council’s commitment to improving the city’s playgrounds, the Barry Street Reserve, Montrose Foreshore and Booth Avenue playspaces have also been renewed this financial year.

The redevelopments of Collinsvale Playground and the Giblins Reserve Playspace are about to begin, and the council is preparing for the upcoming $1 million upgrade of the Benjafield Playground in Moonah.

The council has recently concluded community consultation to decide on a design
for the project, and will share the results and commence work on-site in the new financial year.

“It is fantastic to see the playspace projects we have all been anticipating moving ahead, as our Playspace Strategy is delivered by Council one playground at a time,” Glenorchy Mayor Bec Thomas said.

“I was thrilled to see Glenorchy families playing at Cairnduff once again. I am so pleased Council is delivering new and improved playgrounds to gradually transform our city and provide residents with playspaces that reflect community expectations.

“Providing opportunities for children and families to participate in physical activity in a safe, modern, and exciting environment is critical to health, well-being and development and makes Glenorchy a city where families want to live, work and play.

“If your local playground is yet to be updated or upgraded, stay tuned. We have playspaces planned for all corners of our city, so rest assured your local playground won’t be forgotten!”
