New play space
As part of the council’s transformation of Southbank Boulevard that is currently underway, a new play space is being installed.
The works began in August with some of the equipment being craned in, with more equipment, including climbable rocks, to be installed at the site during August.
As Southbank is one of Melbourne’s most densely populated suburbs, Lord Mayor Sally Capp said it was “important to make the most of opportunities for new open space” and to cater to the diverse community.
“The play space will bring a new sense of adventure and play to the Southbank Boulevard area – providing families with a pocket of tranquility among the bustling Southbank streetscape,” Cr Capp said.
“Within a matter of weeks, a new play space filled with nature-inspired play equipment will be open for everyone to enjoy.”
Come September, the hope is for the play space to be completed and enjoyed by local families.
The new 1000sqm play space can be found between Kavanagh and Fawkner streets on Southbank Boulevard. •
