John Glenn Park - Solid Shade Structure

Project Update - June 2021

Works on this project commenced in March. The structure has been designed and is currently in production. The existing shade sails have been removed from the playground and the removal of the poles will follow closer to the start of onsite commencement. We anticipate onsite works to begin in mid June once the production of the shelter is complete. 

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. 

This project is due to commence in September. Design works will be undertaken as the first stage of this project. We anticipate onsite works to commence in January 2021.
