A key project from the City Centre Master Plan, the Bicentennial Park Play Space was completed in June 2017. 

Bicentennial Park Play Space was opened with great excitement in June 2017 and provides an innovative play space for kids of all ages.  There are loads of great features for a range of different ages and abilities. 

The Play Space was a key project from the City Centre Master Plan, and was successfully completed under a total project budget of around $1.1m excluding GST.

Project Details

  • Urban Play, in partnership with NT Shade, were awarded the contract for this project.
  • Works began in April 2017 and took 8 weeks to complete.

  • An existing small playground near the USS Peary Memorial was removed post construction and the area grassed.
  • The total project budget was approximately $1.1M excluding GST.
