We also asked the community for their feedback on Aranda, Gordon and Ngunnawal play space improvements. Visit the better play spaces page to learn more.

We are looking at

The ACT Government has reviewed all play spaces in Chisholm and identified Alston Street play space as the preferred location for an upgrade. We asked regular users of Chisholm play spaces and the wider community to have a look at the analysis undertaken and provide feedback on the location selected.

The community was also invited to help shape the design for the Chisholm play space upgrade by telling us the mix of new amenities and play opportunities they would like to see included.

The Chisholm play space upgrade could feature:

  • a variety of new play equipment including climbing structures, balancing equipment and swings
  • new amenities such as bike racks, furniture and shade trees
  • safety and accessibility upgrades like lighting, fencing or path improvements
  • diverse play elements such as nature play, basketball hoops, fitness equipment and learn to ride tracks to cater to diverse age groups and all abilities play elements like basket swings.
