Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Glenbrook Park playspace is open!

A new inclusive, accessible, interactive extension to the play area completes the redevelopment of this district park and recreation precinct. (Construction of the junior playground was in 2018)

Thanks to the community for contributing to the final design of the park! We received more than 600 submissions via our Funbobulator - an online tool to select playground equipment - as well as submissions via a pop-up event at the park.

A continuous fence will wrap around both the junior play area and the new equipment. The main entrance is from the village side and there is an entry and exit to the existing toilets and Visitor Information Centre on the other side.

The upgrade includes:

  • A 5.4-metre climbing rope tower with tunnel slide
  • A 20-metre double flying fox with two seats including one for smaller children or those needing support
  • Five additional swings including a multi person nest swing for those who need back support
  • Two trampolines, large enough for a wheelchair
  • Monkey bars
  • Timber balance trail
  • Extra shading and soft fall rubber
  • A range of sensory and imagination stimulating components
  • Accessible pathways
  • Refurbished picnic tables and shelters
  • New seating and tree plantings
  • Recycled elements that continue the transport theme of the junior play area.

Inclusive elements include the flying fox, trampoline, a gong, a nest swing and quiet areas.

All four district parks in the Blue Mountains will receive upgrades valued at more than $5.2 million, thanks to funding received through the Western Parkland City Liveability Program.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    Thank you to all who provided ideas and input for the playspace before the designers got to work.

    You told us which site your preferred, how to make the stage 2 playspace accessible and inclusive, and through the funbobulator we heard what play elements you wanted the most.

    You can now look at the draft design and comment on the layout, the style and the play elements. We would love to hear from you on what you do and don’t like. 

    The whole playspace will be fully fenced, which will bring the junior and new senior area together, with a central picnic area dividing the two areas.

    The existing trees will be retained and an extra shade structure is provided. Five of the top seven funbobulator play items are proposed to be included.  The elements selected are a balance of funbobulator choices, special needs requirements and the budget and site constraints.

    Please note that the items actually installed may differ in colour and style (they may not be an exact match to the images provided in the draft document). This will be dependent on what  is available from the supplier.

    Closing: 5pm on MONDAY 30 September.
