Media Release - Dundas Park Playground Construction paused

Dundas Park Playground construction is paused due to the current public health orders 

Playground construction commenced at Dundas Park in early 2021 and due to the current public health orders construction activity has been paused at the site.

Narromine Shire Council’s General Manager, Mrs Jane Redden reminds everyone that the playground at Dundas Park remains a construction site and can only be accessed by authorised people. 

The safety fencing is in place to prevent anyone from entering and seriously injuring themselves, added Mrs Redden. 

Whilst Council has been finalising some of the building works at the Dundas Park playground site, there are particular construction works that can only be completed by the playground equipment experts in order for the playground to be up and running. 

Council understands how much Narromine Shire residents are looking forward to the opening of this brand-new play area, especially as the weather warms up. Although the contractors are experiencing delays due to the health pandemic, we are still progressing for completion as soon as possible, she added.

The playground design of Aussie Nature Theme chosen by the community will have something out of the ordinary to offer children and families with all accessible play elements including a climbing tower, flying fox, swing sets, learn to ride path, carousel and newly planted landscaping. 

‘Council asks that everyone follows the precautions in place and keeps out of the playground site until construction is completed and is safe to use’ said Mrs Redden.

Council staff have also been working closely with the playground contractor to ensure construction has minimal impact on other users at Dundas Park and the entire community. 

The Dundas Park Playground upgrade is valued at over $400,000 and was made possible due to Stronger Country Communities Fund (Round 3) and Narromine Shire Council.
