Harrowglen Reserve in Northcross is home to a new children’s playground.
Built in response to submissions on the 2011 Upper Harbour Local Board Plan, the playground caters to all ages and abilities. It includes climbing frames, a swinging basket, a learners’ bike track, a flying fox and natural play elements like stepping logs and bridges.
“We’re thrilled to provide a new, high-quality play space for our expanding community in Upper Harbour,” says local board chair Lisa Whyte.
“Playgrounds and neighbourhood reserves are the places where neighbours can meet and become a community. It’s a great place to take kids and the shaded seating area makes it perfect for a picnic lunch on a hot summer’s day.”
Upper Harbour Local Board invested $239,000 in the project, which was completed in January. This funding went towards community consultation, design work and construction.
