Glenorchy Playspaces Stage 3: CLOSED - View the Final Designs

Council is very excited to be building two new regional playspaces in the City of Glenorchy.

Earlier this year, we invited you to give us feedback on the draft designs for our new Playspaces at Giblins Reserve and Montrose Bay Foreshore. Thank you for submitting your ideas and comments. Your feedback was collated and used by the designers to develop the final designs.

At the Glenorchy City Council meeting on 28 September 2020, Council endorsed the final playspace designs. The playspaces are being funded by a Federal Government grant with additional contributions by Council.
