To expand the current playpark provision in Lisbane to make it more suitable for the needs of a wider range of young people.


An integrated Village Plan identified the need for a safe play area as one of the main needs of the village. There was an existing play facility, but it catered primarily for the needs of younger children. They had nothing suitable for children who were 12 or older. The project proposed the addition of a multi-play unit for older children, a rope swing unit, and signage.


Funding from DRAP allowed the applicant to install fencing and gate, safety surfacing, seating, teenage multiplay area, teenage rope swing, and signage.
