John Doggett Park - Final stage of upgrade works

 The final element of the upgrading program is the provision of a new combination climbing structure and slide. Work associated with the installation of the structure will commence Monday 16 October 2017.

The playground will be closed for approximately one week to allow for the removal of the old slide and the setting of the footings for the new equipment.

The playground will then re-open to the public (without a slide, whilst the new footings dry and set) for approximately four weeks.

The playground will again be closed for approximately one week to allow the installation of the new equipment.

During the playground closures access to the public toilet located in the park will remain via Lochner Street, with access via Brown Street temporarily closed.
