Tolmans Hill Park

Residents of Tolmans Hill will soon be presented with a new playground which incorporates design features recommended by the public. The project team listened to the community and updated their designs to include:

  • the addition of an intermediate loop track with bike skill features
  • the addition of adult exercise equipment
  • the addition of 2 more parking spaces
  • moving the main entry path into the playground and the addition of extra fencing

The Council approved the updated design at its meeting held on the 4 December 2017.

We will soon be lodging a development application for the new playground and should approval be granted, work is scheduled to commence in the first half of 2018.
