Playground Upgrades

Our green spaces include parks and playgrounds throughout the municipality. We're keeping these spaces fresh with a number of planned improvements.

Playground Repair and Replacement

There are numerous playgrounds have been damaged during the Cyclone Marcus. 21 playgrounds have been identified as significantly damaged with six of these requiring full replacement (like for like) by our insurer.

Works are expected to be finished by the end of October 2018. The playgrounds will be closed while works take place.

We thank you for your patience.

Playground Refurbishments

There are over 195 items of play equipment throughout the municipality, including three regional playgrounds at Anula, East Point and Jingili Watergardens. Each year funds are allocated to the capital works program for the upgrade of playgrounds.

Last year Council consulted with the community on upgrading seven playgrounds across Darwin as part of our Playground Program for 2017-2018. These upgrades will still take place but they have been put on hold until the playground repairs and replacements from Cyclone Marcus are dealt with. There were safety concerns with the cyclone damaged playgrounds which means they are a higher priority than the below upgrades.

We apologise for any inconvenience.

The six neighbourhood playgrounds that are getting upgraded but have been postponed are:

  • Airlie Park, Brinkin
  • Armstrong Park, Leanyer
  • Colster Park, Wagaman
  • Brian Chong Wee Park, Woolner
  • Freycinet Park, Karama
  • Borella Park, Jingili

The playgrounds which also need shade structures which will have that installed at the same time.

UPDATE September 2018 : The upgrades to these six neighbourhood playgrounds are on hold until the 21 cyclone damaged playgrounds are repaired and replaced.
