Wood Park Redevelopment

Wood Park Redevelopment December 2021

Work on the new Wood Park playspace is well underway, with local children able to enjoy the inclusive area.

The $380,000 project was funded through $66,000 from the NSW Government’s Stronger Country Communities Fund and $12,000 from Lions Club Griffith to build the shelter and associated services, with an additional $155,000 from the Department of Planning, Industry and Environment under the Everyone Can Play program, and $155,000 from Griffith City Council.

The new playspace delivers significant improvements to the existing playground including a basket swing, climbing frame, picnic area, flying fox, accessible carousel with space for wheelchair and a seat for carer, and fitness equipment.

Wood Park also boasts the largest shelter in any Council park, a double wheelchair accessible barbecue, water bubbler, seating and a climbing wall.

Griffith Mayor Elect, Doug Curran said, when completed, the new playspace will be another excellent asset for the City.

“This wonderful new space is ready in time for children and their families to use during the upcoming school holidays,” said Cr Curran.

“I’m sure our community will enjoy this neighbourhood playground where everyone feels comfortable playing and having fun in the outdoors.”

An Official Opening will be held early 2022.

Council’s Urban Design team held a Community Consultation session at Wood Park in May 2021 to speak with residents regarding the upcoming upgrade to the playground and park facilities.

Around 30 residents called past to have a coffee, put their ideas forward and view the draft designs.

The Team have drafted new plans incorporating the feedback received with construction works are planned to start toward the end of the year.
