The City of Hobart acquired a parcel of land located on the corner of Woodcutters Road and Old Proctors Road. The Department of State Growth generously allowed the transfer of the land to develop a new playground on Tolmans Hill.
Tolmans Hill Park features three mountain bike tracks, and playground equipment. Additional features, such as extra fencing, were added to the original design following the consultation process, which included two on-site ‘listening posts’. A key outcome of the community consultation was the inclusion of exercise equipment for adults, making it a park for all ages and abilities.
Construction of the new playground was completed in September 2018, with the mountain bike tracks available for use from October 2018.
