It has previously been identified by Council for reservation for sporting use. The Reynolds Road underpass provides safer pedestrian and cycle access from the north and around the playspace contains a series of paths including a circuit and pedestrian lighting.
The playspace is suitable for children aged 1-8 years and consists of a combination unit with lots of climbing and sliding fun and swings. It is part of a very large space (5.0 hectares) which contains a series of paths, including a circuit, two exercise stations and pedestrian lighting. It is earmarked for an upgrade to include play opportunities for all abilities alongside toilet and barbecue facilities.
