Parsley Bay Reserve Playground will undergo a major upgrade following community consultation undertaken last year. The design of the new playground incorporates the community feedback and will result in a fun, challenging and inclusive play space that reflects the bush and harbourside location as well as touching on the history of the park.
The works will commence on 13 May 2019 and are expected to be completed in late June 2019, weather permitting. The playground will be closed for use during this time.
