Last chance to have your say on St Johns Park play space upgrade

You are invited to have your say about final designs for a new play space at St Johns Park at Blaxland Oval.

Blue Mountains City Council has secured a $500,000 grant to upgrade the existing play space at St Johns Park and build a new accessible toilet.

The funds will provide new equipment and improvements that make the space inclusive for users of all abilities.

The proposed play space upgrade includes a new mammoth swing, accessible carousel, voice tube, garden chimes, an arch bridge, and a boat seat and expression seat added to the existing swing set.

The new equipment will be suitable for all levels of ability, including older children. Other proposed changes include picnic and seating areas, additional tree plantings, accessible parking spaces and connected pathways, fencing near the road, and surrounding landscaping.

Blue Mountains City Council received funding through the Australian Government’s Community Development Grants Programme for this project.

  • St Johns Park: a local park

    Not every park and playground is the same. We have different kinds of parks and playgrounds, which people use differently, and need different equipment and management. St Johns Park (Blaxland) is a ‘local park’ – that means it’s smaller than a district park, but still has enough infrastructure and equipment to service a large part of the Blue Mountains community.

    When parks and playgrounds need to be upgraded, we consult with the community to find out what you want in that space. We then use that information to plan the upgrade, along with the Open Space and Recreation Strategic Plan, and within the context of the type and size of park, and the budget limitations for the project.
