We're creating a new play space in Kensington that will provide for the play needs of children up to 12.
The existing playground at JJ Holland Park is a large neighbourhood space that is popular with children and families. The renewal of the space provides an opportunity to meet a broader range of play and social needs.
The renewal of the playground will:
- provide more opportunities for diverse play
- better connect the space by improving pathways and integrating the existing basketball half-court
- increase social gathering spaces including lawns, seating and picnic facilities.
After gathering community feedback, we developed a concept plan for the play space. The concept plan was open for community consultation throughout 2018 and 2019.
Following construction through early to mid-2021, the JJ Holland Park Play Space is now open.
