A BULLI playground will be upgraded over the next three weeks, as part of Wollongong City Council’s Play Wollongong Strategy.
The playground in O’Brien Reserve, Bulli, is listed for an upgrade with works expected to start next week.
The removal of the ageing playground equipment and replacement with new swings, slides and climbing frames is part of Council’s annual Capital Works program and continues a focus on play space renewal and improvements.
In the coming months the playground at Pinecourt Park in Austinmer is also scheduled for an upgrade.
Work on Chinnock Park in Wollongong, on the corner of Matthews and Sperry Streets, started on Friday and is expected to take about three weeks, provided there is good weather.
Last financial year Council spent $1.5M on playground renewals and upgrades, and it’s anticipated approximately a further $1M will be spent this financial year.
Recently, playgrounds at Sheargold Park in Cordeaux Heights, Kundle Street Reserve in Dapto and Austinmer Beach Reserve have all been replaced.
