Minor improvements at existing playgrounds

An annual program of minor improvements is carried out at play spaces across Canberra. These improvements are identified through level three safety inspections.

This could include additional mulch and softfall, raising of swings to ensure safe clearance to the ground when in use, general landscaping improvements or rearrangement of equipment to ensure impact areas are to standard.

The below locations have been included in the upcoming program. Final locations are budget dependent. We anticipate commencing construction on the improvements towards the end of the first quarter of 2024.
