The playground should be ready for action by mid November. Meanwhile, there is only a few days left to give an opinion about the design of an upgrade of Wallarah Point Peace Park in Gorokan.

Council is renewing and upgrading the reserve to a district level playspace for various age groups by providing a larger, inclusive, safe and engaging space beside the tourist information and arts centre, boat ramp, car park and amenities building.

An online survey and community forum will close on Friday, October 25 at Construction is underway for the new park in Hillcrest Ave, Tacoma, and should be finished by the end of October.

There will be a climbing net, a slide, swings, spinner and rocker, rubber soft fall underfoot, a pathway and new park furniture. Consultation for an upgraded Swadling Reserve at Toowoon Bay will be open in November.
