Upcoming Tailem Bend Playground Works

17th July 2020

In line with its playground replacement program, Council will shortly commence works at the Tailem Bend Playground located on Railway Terrace, having identified a section of the playground that requires replacement.

Owing to its age and deteriorating condition, a section of playground that includes monkey bars, swing bridge, slides and climbing equipment will be removed and replaced over the coming weeks.

Works are scheduled to commence after the July school holidays (on 20 July 2020), and will take place over the following two to three week period (dependent on weather). This will include removal of the current playground and rubber soft-fall, preparation of the site, installation of new equipment, and laying new rubber soft-fall.

The new playground equipment will feature a similar design to the existing structure, with the inclusion of slides and extra climbing equipment.

Please be aware that while the works are being undertaken a portion of the Tailem Bend Playground will be sectioned off, and not will not accessible to the public.

We look forward to the improved site being well-used and enjoyed by our young residents, families and visitors once it is complete.
