Installation of a new playground in Brunner Park, East Branxton was completed in June 2021.
The new facility boasts state of the art play equipment including a 3 seater combo swing, sensory and sound area, rope balance unit, and a geoclimber. New features also include accessible pathways, softfall safety surfacing, park furniture and additional seating.
The old playground had only a swing, slide and spring rider and was approximately 50 years old.
Funding has been secured for the installation of a shade sail over the play area. Works are expected to commence on this final stage in July 2021.
