What we've heard so far

We received 109 comments during the first stage of engagement. Comments included:

  • requests for play equipment suited for a mix of young and older kids
  • nature-based design and materials
  • shade over the playground.


Following your feedback, we have selected a playground design that incorporates activities and equipment that you asked for and that compliments the local area.

As part of our Playground Renewal Program, we are proposing to replace the existing playground equipment at Birdwood Park, adjacent to the North Narrabeen Surf Life Saving Club.

The new playground will be within the existing footprint and will include new equipment, softfall, furniture, fence and the addition of some landscaping.

Council has an approved budget in 2019/20 to develop a concept plan and to renew the playground.

Not included in this project:

  • shade structure
  • amenities building upgrade
  • reserve upgrade
  • carpark upgrade
