Willoughby City parks receive revamps catering for all ages

Willoughby City

Playground upgrades

Residents have told us that one of the things they value most about living in Willoughby City is the open spaces. Some of the community’s most loved parks have undergone exciting upgrades and renovations to cater to all ages.

Denawen Park playground, Castle Cove

This fenced playground next to the Denawen Road shops has been re-invigorated with new swings, a slide, fort structure and a discovery garden.

Willoughby Park, Willoughby

New exercise equipment has been installed at this beautiful park, including; leg press, body pull and push-ups, chest press, step-up station, pull-ups/leg raises, sit-up bench and three pull-up bars.

The installation of a fun flying fox completes the playground upgrade.

Don Wilson Playground, Naremburn

This playground has undergone an exciting upgrade. The new area catering to older children includes; a flying fox, large slide, hammock swing and climbing net.

The existing play area has been updated to include a quad swing, embankment slide, springers, and a timber balance challenge. Timber was sourced from the Eucalyptus sideroxylon (Red Ironbark) which was removed from site (due to its poor condition).

There are also new picnic tables, shelters and a bubbler. New footpaths link the extension area to the existing playground and improve accessibility.

Artarmon Parklands, Artarmon

The latest addition in Artarmon Parklands is a children’s climbing wall, which utilises the existing natural sandstone cut face. The wall has been designed for older children as a bouldering wall to invite agility by climbing horizontally.

Make sure you enjoy the beautiful winter sunshine by visiting the upgraded playgrounds.
