The new playspace at Kariong (Curringa Rd) is open for fun! 

Designed with community feedback, the new space has equipment suitable for children aged up to 10 years, with slides, climbing structures, a swing set, and spring rocker along with new seating and connective pathways.

The playspace sits alongside the skatepark and pump track built last year, which has sheltered seating and a water refill station, and conveniently located within the Kariong Oval precinct with sports fields and a library.

Nestled between mature eucalyptus trees and connected open grassed areas, this central community space offers active and passive recreational opportunities for everyone in the community to enjoy.  This location also allows for natural surveillance which creates a safer environment and reduces anti-social behaviour.

This project was funded under Section 7.11 development contributions (also known as local infrastructure contributions), which are charged by Council when new development occurs. These contributions fund local infrastructure needed to support an increased number of residents in the area.

Do you have a question around playspace design and inclusions?   Wondering how Council plans for upgrades or new playspaces?  View our playspace frequently asked questions and Playspace Strategy for more information.
