Onslow Street Reserve Upgrade

Upgraded play equipment at Onslow Street Reserve

As identified in our Play Space Strategy, we’re improving Onslow Street Reserve to ensure it is fit for purpose and up to the latest Australian Standards.

The upgrade includes:

  • A new play space with a multi-play unit, swings, rubber soft fall, custom tunnel and nature play elements;
  • A new steel garden fence along the park frontage;
  • Additional park bench and bin enclosure
  • New park signage
  • New tree planting and garden beds
  • New connecting path to the playground

Construction started in late February 2022 and is expected to finish in June 2022, weather permitting.

Expected work hours and times are 7am – 5pm Monday – Friday (and Saturdays 8am – 1pm if required).

We expect there will be some construction noise however, we will make every effort to minimise the inconvenience to you by ensuring that no loud machinery is used prior to 7:30am. Thank you for your patience and understanding while we complete this upgrade.

We're holding an opening event on Saturday 20 August 2022, 9–10.30am

Join us on Saturday 20 August from 9am to celebrate the re-opening of Onslow Street Reserve! The event will include a ceremonial ribbon cutting with Mayor Paula Masselos followed by free coffee and face painting. See you there!

June 2022 Update

Fencing has been removed around Onslow St Reserve and the upgraded park and play area is now open for the community to enjoy. Para-webbing will remain around the grass for another 4 to 6 weeks to allow the turf to establish and avoid any potential trip hazards.

Our contractor, GJs Landscapes, will complete furniture and fixture works over the coming weeks. This can be managed with the park open.

Thank you for your patience as final works are completed.
