Hunter Park Improvements

Contractors will be starting work on improvements to the Hunter Park play area on the 24th June. 

The work will take up to 4 weeks to complete and is planned to be ready for the start of the school summer holidays.  During this time the play area will fenced off and not available to use. 

Work to improve the facilities at Hunter Park will include the laying of a rubber mulch surface within the play area, refurbishment of existing play equipment, including the sandpit, a new bench and  the installation of an octopus see saw.

The basketball court will be totally upgraded with the resurfacing of part of the court and the installation of a basketball hoop and mesh backing fence. The remainder of the court will be dug up and a Clamber Stax climbing frame installed with protective wood chip surface laid. A division between the two sections of the court will be constructed with goal targets on one side and a low climbing wall on the other. A compacted stone path around the area will complete the project.
