Irish Town Grove playground update

Council is upgrading the playground at Irish Town Grove in Turramurra.

Community consultation was undertaken to inform the design of the local playground in late 2018.

This consultation resulted in a variety of differing opinions on items and location of the play space. Council is delivering an inclusive play space based on this feedback.

Our goal for the upgrade is to create an attractive, engaging and inclusive community place for everyone to enjoy. It will be a place to meet, play, relax and exercise that enhances the local neighbourhood and growing residential community.

The final design for this local park includes:

  • A playground catering for a range of age groups and abilities.
  • Open areas of lawn for relaxing and sitting.
  • A number of seats, a shelter and picnic table.
  • A drinking fountain.
  • An accessible path network to link the park’s activity areas.
  • Rubber softfall.
  • A path/scooter track through the reserve.

About the playground

This playspace is categorised as a local playground. Local playgrounds generally cater for residents within walking distance and are not designed to attract users from much further afield.

They are the most common category of playgrounds within the Council and usually do not include facilities such as toilets as they are intended for shorter stays.

Please note that the final plan has differed from the initial concept due to feedback from the community and latent conditions of the site assessed and accommodated during the detailed design phase.
