The ACT Government has reviewed all play spaces in Lyons and identified the play space at the Lyons Oval as the preferred location for an upgrade. Furthermore the preferred option is to relocate this play space to the other side of the playing fields closer to Launceston Street. Regular users of Lyons play spaces and the wider community are encouraged to have a look at the analysis undertaken prior to providing feedback.

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

The Lyons play space upgrade could feature:

  • safety and accessibility upgrades such as 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 such as basket swings and activity boards.
