Parks and Reserve works

A new playground is being installed at Axford-Barker Reserve in Como to provide local families with access to fun and functional play equipment.

Surrounded by lawn and large shady trees, the park is set to become a regular meeting place for families with children of varying ages.

The new design has a large play structure with a range of equipment for little ones to explore while also providing a challenge for older children. The features include:

  • Dual swing set with a toddler seat
  • Balance beam, step joiners and tunnel
  • Slide
  • Rock climbing wall
  • Rope climbing wall
  • Accessible rocker

Installation is currently taking place, with completion expected by Friday 28 July 2023.

The former playground's shade sails will not be replaced and new fencing is due to be replaced early August, with turf replacement to be completed mid-August.
