Consultation Snapshot

Playgrounds offer an avenue for the physical, social, cognitive and linguistic development of children. The City of Canada Bay aspires to ensure that all local families can comfortably walk to a neighbourhood playground within less than 10 minutes from their home.

It was endorsed at Council's Meeting of 4 July not to proceed with a playground at the location which was consulted on. Council officers will investigate alternate locations and re-consult with the community.

View the Report presented to Council.

The pre-existing playground at Rothwell Park was removed due to the construction of a new amenities building at the western side of the park.
 
The new playground is proposing to include new play equipment that caters to age 2-10 years old, wheelchair accessible mulch soft fall, shade structure and shade trees, and playground-friendly landscapes. The playground will be fenced, a seat and drinking fountain and a bin will also be provided.
