More fun on the way at Tolley Reserve14 Apr. 2021
The playground at Tolley Reserve – affectionately known as the Nuri Train Park – is set for a major upgrade.
The $100,000 investment in new equipment focuses on inclusivity to cater for a wide range of users, including children with disability and sensory needs.
Key features include a new orbit carousel that is wheelchair-friendly and greater integration between the liberty swing and surrounding play spaces.
Existing equipment at the northern end of the park will be completely replaced with contemporary play equipment to challenge balance and mobility.
New features include swings, rocker, balance beam, stepping stones, seat glide, spinning sonic and sensory board. Mayor Bim Lange said the play space will be expanded to accommodate the new and upgraded equipment.
“With installation of new equipment, plus the BMX and pump track, iconic train engine and beautiful natural setting, Tolley Reserve really does combine the best of nature play and adventure play," says Mayor Lange.
Construction will take place between April and June, with some disruption to playground access during this time.
