Council are exploring upgrade options now because the existing playground is approaching the end of its lifespan. Without an upgrade, it will become unsuitable for community use.
The rest of the Lidgett Street Reserve will be upgraded in later stages.
Council is committed to retaining a playground in this park. The new play equipment will move closer to the Lidgett Street frontage of the park.
Community feedback will help to finalise the design for the rest of the park upgrade and ensure that it best meets the needs of all users.
The overall 'footprint' of the site cannot change as it is bordered by houses.
