Jenkins Park (also known as Jenkins Playground) forms part of Green Gully Linear Park. It is well located to serve local recreation needs as well as those of the wider district. We've identified this park for sporting use. The Reynolds Road underpass provides safer pedestrian and cycle access from the north and around the playground contains a series of paths including a circuit and pedestrian lighting.
The playground is suitable for children aged 1 to 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.
