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 March, with submissions closing 1 April.
