As part of the 2023/24 Capital Works Playground Renewal Program, we are proposing to undertake the renewal of Trafalgar Park Playground in Newport.

The playground is located amongst the established trees and open space of Trafalgar Park. The playground is well used by school children from the neighbouring Newport Public School.

We are looking to replace the existing play equipment and upgrade the play areas with new surfacing, edging, retaining walls, seating and path connections. There would be some modification to the shape and size of play areas to cater for these improvements.

We would like you to tell us what you like and value about the park and playground before we finalise plans and engage a playground supplier.

We visited Newport Public School and spoke to Year 1 students about the playground and the upcoming renewal project. We listened to a few ideas and answered questions to help with their learning project. As part of this session, we asked which style of senior play equipment (aimed at children aged 6 to 10 years) they preferred. Now we would like to ask the same question to the wider community.

Please note that the outcome of this vote may not necessarily result in this piece being selected for Trafalgar Park, but it will help guide decision-making for Trafalgar Park or other upcoming projects.
