The Birrarung Marr Playground is one of Melbourne’s loved play spaces, capturing the imagination of visitors of all ages for the past 20 years.

To make sure the Birrarung Marr Playground continues to delight visitors for years to come, we plan to rejuvenate the space to create a safer, more accessible place to play.

As part of the renewal plans, we will maintain the overall structure and layout of the current playground, replace some of the play equipment, improve safety and address functional issues such as providing drainage improvements and making maintenance easier.

The renewal of the playground will focus on the joy of nature-based play and create a space for the community to share moments of joy and discovery with each other.

We’d love to know how you use the Birrarung Marr Playground and what you think of our renewal plan.
