Project Update: Peninsula Lakes Playground

Site works for the new playground at Peninsula Lakes in Eaton will begin in November with hopes high that it will be ready for fun by Christmas.

Stage 1 of the new playground will include:

  • Custom high-quality ropes adventure course in circuit format, with unique elevated cubby feature and elements selected for maximum play value including a hammock swing, balancing ropes, rope ‘monkey bars’ and nets
  • Spinner – inclusive sensory feature with spinning motion function
  • Rockers x 2
  • Formal edge comprising a two-course limestone block wall (straight with feature ‘turret’ sections of varying block heights and orientations), rock work and a feature hand formed concrete ‘beach’ edge plus sand for sensory play value.

In response to community feedback, smaller pieces of equipment more suited to younger children have been included. It is proposed to install accessible rubber paths through the playground in stage two of the park upgrade, which will allow greater access for people of all abilities.

Stay tuned for further updates as the project progresses…
