Glenbrook District Park Playground – Stage 2

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

Glenbrook Park is receiving a new inclusive, accessible, interactive extension to the play area catering for seven to 12 year olds.

Plans have now been finalised for the design of this new playground!

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. Thanks to the community for contributing to the final design of the park!

New features include a:

  • 5.4-metre climbing rope tower with tunnel slide
  • 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, one large enough for a wheelchair
  • monkey bars
  • timber balance trail, and
  • a range of sensory and imagination-stimulating components.

The play equipment will be surrounded by soft fall rubber, seating and picnic tables, as well as accessible pathways. There will be extensive shade and new tree plantings, and a new entrance features recycled elements with the old transport theme. The playground will also be fenced.

The successful tender is currently being finalised and construction of the playground is scheduled to start before the end of 2020.

The playground will complement the recently completed junior playground, making Glenbrook Park a great family recreation precinct for all ages and abilities.

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.
