Play spaces are popping up all over Canberra. Canberra.bike provided a guide to play spaces and this is now updated in this post. A recent announcement by Chris Steel in May 2020 reminded us that there is more to come. Some were already in last years budget but a few have been brought forward as a result of COVID-19 playground closures. There is good news here for everybody.

New play spaces coming

As reported in The RiotACT (10 May 2020), two nature playgrounds will also be built at Yerrabi Pond District Park and Kambah Adventure Playground but also new play spaces in Richardson, Waramanga, Torrens, Narrabundah and Higgins.

Five new play spaces are also in the works at Richardson, Waramanga, Torrens, Narrabundah and Higgins after contracts were signed this week to construct a feature play space in each suburb.

The refurbishment costs for the extra 30 playgrounds will total around $375,000, while the two nature playgrounds at Yerrabi Pond and Kambah will cost the government $400,000. This is in addition to the 20 playground refurbishments and five play spaces that had $1.5 million allocated to them in last year’s ACT budget.
