Kew, a brand new playground is coming your way!
Construction started on 23 October 2019 for a new community playground in Kew. The new playground will be situated behind the iKew Visitor Information Centre and kids will soon be jumping for joy with the inclusion of nature & music play, a slide, swings... plus a timber plane.
The Kew Community Park project builds on Council’s commitment to provide a large range of outdoor recreational spaces for our residents. This project encompasses the design and build of a new playground and park facilities in open parkland adjoining the iKew Visitor Information Centre.
The installation of picnic settings and improvements to landscaping will result in an inviting setting for a broader demographic of the community and encourage people to explore new recreational facilities in their own backyard.
The community was provided with the opportunity to put forth their preference for the location of the playground, the overall theme of the playground and what elements they would like to see included in the final design.
Funding for this project has been provided in full by the state government through the Stronger Country Communities Fund Round 2.
The playground is scheduled to open on 17 December 2019 (weather permitting).
