Clune Park - Solid Shade Structure

Project Update - September 2020

Works on this project commenced in August 2020.

Our team is currently working onsite. The playground is currently fenced off for the duration of the works. Please ensure you obey the warning signage in place as this is a construction zone.

The construction of the shelter is now complete. Our team will be undertaking a site clean up in early September. We are awaiting our contractor to undertake the sand cleaning to ensure the playground is safe to reopen to the public.

We anticipate that the playground will be closed until early September. Once onsite works are complete, the temporary fencing will be removed and the playground reopened for use. 

Project Overview

Currently our parks have shade sails over the existing play equipment. Shade sails are prone to damage and have a limited life period before they require replacement. As a part of our asset preservation program we have identified the need to remove the shade sails from our parks and replace them with a solid roof structure. These solid roof structures provide a more protected environment from weather elements for both the playground users and the playground equipment. These structure also provide a long term cost saving due to their long life expectancy and minimal ongoing maintenance.

We hope that this structure provides a more comfortable area for users of the play equipment along with extending the life of the equipment.
