About the renewal
We are renewing the playground at Burwood Reserve, located on Warrigal Road in Glen Iris. We are doing this to:
- improve accessibility
- offer a range of play experiences for children
- ensure the playground is enhanced for families to enjoy into the future.
We’ve prioritised this playground for renewal, under our Playground Replacement Program, because the posts in the main timber play structures are starting to rot. We also need to upgrade access to the barbecue, furniture and playground to meet the requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act 1992.
We expect to start building the new playground in the 2024-2025 financial year.
About the existing playground
The existing ‘Australiana’ themed timber playground was built in 2005. It includes play equipment like swings, slides, monkey bars, spring riders and a carousel.
This playground is classified as a district playground in Boroondara’s Playground Redevelopment Strategy. For a quick summary of what that means, see the question panel on the right of this page.
