    Thank you for your patience while we worked hard to design a fun playground for all.

    The time has come to pack up the old equipment. Weather permitting, the playground will be closed from late May 2021 until late July 2021 for construction. If you have any questions, please contact Belinda Kitchin directly.

    We are exploring options for both parks based on your feedback and other information.

    It is Council's intention to remove the existing park lighting as part of the upgrade, pending approval from Ausgrid. Council is no longer maintaining park lighting which does not light pedestrian pathways.

    Some participants commented about dogs in the parks. Please keep in mind Bain Playground is a dog free area and Crammond Park is an on-leash park. Avoid a fine by reviewing our parks with dog off leash areas.
