Proposed layout of Lightsview Adventure Playground

Head further north over a large grassed area, perfect for kicking the football or an afternoon picnic, and you’ll come across an area for the older children where they’ll be able to enjoy playing with friends by shooting a few hoops or skating around and trying some new tricks.

With views over the existing wetlands, families can sit back and relax under the picnic shelters or fire up a delicious barbecue for lunch or dinner.

The playground will be surrounded by grassed areas, native planting and landscaping, and overall will cover approximately 5,000sqm of the 6.2ha wetland and park precinct.
