Work on the new Islington Park playground has begun. The existing equipment has been removed and construction is underway on the new area, which will include a climbing net, swings, spinning play items, water play feature, low climbing walls and a junior play structure with slides and rope play. Areas have also been prepared for a new children’s cycleway and two new picnic shelters.
Construction on the new playground is expected to be completed (depending on weather) by the end of August. For more information go to the City of Newcastle’s website.
