Playground Upgrades

The Neighbourhood park playground in Wanguri between Mazlin street and Weedon street is being upgraded. New play equipment and a shade structure will be installed next year (planned for July 2017).

We recently asked to hear from park users and residents about what elements they would like to see included in the upgraded playground. Thank you for all the feedback provided, this will be used to inform the design of the playground.


Sunset Park Upgrade

The small junior play slide and climbing structure is being replaced with this larger structure.

This great new play combination offers a variety of physically developing play activities. 

Installation date: 1st week of December 2016


Whittle Park, Karama   Playground Upgrade

Council is replacing the aged play equipment in Whittle Park in Karama. 

The Community was consulted in July 2016 on the new playground equipment. The new equipment will be shaded.

Updates on construction will be posted here shortly. (Expected to be constructed early 2017)


Anula Regional Playground in Yanyula Park Update September 2016

This fabulous playground is now complete. All areas are now open. 

Photos will be posted here soon.


Dwyer Park, The Narrows

The Dwyer Park Consultation was completed last year. Thank you to all the people who provided input, this will be used in developing the design of the new playground.

At the same time the Northern Territory Government has been planning works to reduce flooding during high rainfall events in the suburbs of the Narrows and Ludmilla. As part of these works, drainage will be improved in Dwyer Park, and to the trunk drains along Reichardt and Benison Road that convey flows to Sadgroves Creek.

To minimise disruption to residents, City of Darwin will construct the new playground in coordination with the delivery of the flood mitigation works within Dwyer Park. It is anticipated that the flood mitigation works for the Ludmilla catchment will start during the 2016 dry season and finish by June 2017.

We will keep you informed of the progress and let you know when the playground construction dates are confirmed.
