ACT Government’s Better Suburbs Program – making old suburbs new
“Play space upgrades
As part of the ACT Government’s Better Suburbs Program, a community-led Play Spaces Forum allocated $1.9 million to improve playgrounds. One key decision was the allocation of $350,000 for new nature play spaces to enhance Eddison Park in Woden and Glebe Park in the City. $150,000 was also set aside to build a nature play space in Farrer. Read all about the new nature play spaces here.”Play space upgrades, ACT Government, accessed 25 June 2020
