Swan Street Park Improvements


Thank you to everyone who took the time to submit feedback on this project. A revised concept plan for the Swan Street Park, North Hobart has been developed based on the feedback received during the community engagement process. The following changes were made to the design:

  • Additional seating and green spaces
  • Addition of a small fenced play space
  • Reconfiguration of space to create more independent spaces suitable for smaller groups
  • Design changes to create a filled, activated pace that the community can play, meet and enjoy daily.

The project team is also exploring possible opportunities to install bike parking adjacent to the park.

The revised plan was presented to the Council at its meeting on 20 May 2019, where it was resolved that:

  1. The Council approve the revised refurbishment plan for Swan Street Park, North Hobart, marked as Attachment A to the report, to enable detailed planning and construction to proceed.

    (ii) $55,000 from the 2019/2020 asset renewal budget.
  3. The General Manager be authorised to secure all necessary statutory approvals for the works, proceed with the upgrade and finalise lease arrangements with the landowner.
