Bicentennial Park Play Space
Bicentennial Park will soon receive an exciting new play space for kids of all ages!
The Play Space is a key project from the City Centre Master Plan.
City of Darwin is set to commence construction of the Bicentennial Park Play Space. Works are scheduled to begin approximately 28 April - 2 May and are expected to take 6-8 weeks. The Play Space will be open for the start of the mid-year school holiday at the end of June.
The location of the Play Space is opposite The DoubleTree Hilton Hotel (see map). The Play Space will be in the section of park between the road and the central path.
To allow for construction, three trees will be removed from the park. Five trees will be planted to replace the ones removed and once mature, these trees will increase the shade adjacent to the play space.
The existing small playground near the USS Peary Memorial will be removed post Play Space construction, and the area will be grassed.
During the construction of the new Play Space:
- The construction area will be temporarily fenced
- Some car parking spaces adjacent to this section of road will be temporarily unavailable
- There will be no road closures on the Esplanade
- Traffic management will be in place for the movement of construction vehicles at the site
- Some noise disturbance is expected during these works
Council will work with the contractors Urban Play and NT Shade to minimise disturbance and inconvenience during these works.
Please observe any signage and traffic management in the area for your safety
The Bicentennial Park Play Space will be located on The Esplanade, Darwin (in front of the Doubletree Hilton Hotel)
This detailed plan (below) shows where the equipment, shelters and new trees will be located.
