We are excited to share that works will commence on the Lyne Park Playground Upgrade from Monday 15 January. The upgrade will see this precious open space provide a range of new recreational uses for the community.

The new playground will provide inclusive, imaginative and flexible recreational experiences for all ages and abilities.

Design concept for the new playground

Works will include new play equipment such as:

• Double flying fox

• Four bay swing with seven types of swings suitable for a variety of ages and abilities

• Sensory walkway

• Water play zone

• Nature play area for older children and inter-generational recreational experiences

• An imaginative climbing and sliding boat plane – a playful nod to the site’s history as the former Rose Bay International Airport.

We are grateful for the strong interest and participation we received from the community during consultation and your feedback has helped shape these improvements.

This project is funded by Woollahra Council and the NSW Department of Planning and Environment’s Places to Play, Metropolitan Greenspace Program and the Australian Government’s Investing in our Communities Program.

To enable the works to be delivered safely, the reserve will be closed for approximately six months from Monday 15 January. We thank you for your patience.

Nearby playgrounds include: Rose Bay Park (behind Rose Bay Police Station), Bellevue Park and Thornton Reserve, Bellevue Hill. Alternatively you can explore nearby playgrounds by using our What's Near Me feature.
