Kahibah Playground ready and set for a total makeover

Date posted: 15 October 2018

Local residents and visitors to Kahibah will be excited to hear works will start this week on a $125,000 revamp at Kahibah Park, Kahibah, as part of Council’s Playground Renewals Program.

Council’s Manager Asset Management, Helen Plummer, said the new playground will provide a modern play space for families in the Kahibah area to enjoy.

“The playground is planned to have new equipment such as a spider swing and infant swing, climbing structure and also new tables and chairs,” Ms Plummer said.

“Each year, Council renews up to four playgrounds to ensure that our facilities continue to provide safe and engaging play spaces for children and families.

Council is committed to providing recreational spaces for the community to enjoy and is forecast to spend $4 million on improving parks and playgrounds in 2018-19 as part of its capital works program.

“Council thanks residents for their patience while these works are undertaken. The playground will be closed for about 8-10 weeks while replacement works are carried out,” Ms Plummer said.

The playground is expected to reopen in early December 2018.

While construction takes place, we’d encourage the community to use nearby playgrounds at Highfields Reserve, Highfields or Attunga Park, Charlestown. Just visit our playground map to find a play area near you.
