The Kingston Park Playground is now open with a variety of activities set to start from 4pm, Friday the 26th March and onwards throughout April.
To make sure that everyone can get a chance to enjoy the playground and that it remains Covid safe, activities have been organised across the month of April. That way, if the playground is crowded when you arrive over the weekend you can choose to come back another time and are assured that there will fun activities available.
Kingston Park is one part of a larger plan to transform central Kingston into a rich and vibrant area. It is located on the former site of the Kingston High School and includes a sand play area, slides and seesaws, spinning and sensory garden, rope forest wedge-tail eagle nest, rock pool water play and baby and toddler play area.
The playground has also threshold-free pathways with gentle gradients, ample DDA-compliant seating a raised sand and water play table and DDA-compliant picnic tables and barbecues.
There are toilets located at the Community Hub including a Baby Change bathroom (located within the Universal toilet) and Changing Places bathroom (please note that users of the Changing Place bathroom will require their own sling and MLAK key). An additional toilet block will be located in the second stage of the Public Open Space, which is due to commence construction later in 2021.
A bike repair station is located near the playground entrance off Pardalote Parade. There are two bike hoops for bike parking. One is located near the basketball court and another near the Sparrowhawk Street entrance. A third bike hoop will be installed when the rest of Pardalote Parade has been constructed.
The playground combines contemporary play ideas and integrates them into a beautiful Tasmanian environment, in the heart of Kingston.
