Concept design for All Abilities & Ages Play Space Stuart Park

In a first for Wollongong, we're planning an extension to Stuart Park Playground for an additional inclusive play space that provides for young people and adults with disability. The additional offerings include stimulating play equipment, physical challenges and natural and sensory discoveries to provide a range of play options for all ages and abilities.

A two-staged approach to construction is proposed, with Stage 1 works planned for June 2021. Additional phased access upgrades in Stuart Park, including toilets, linking paths and parking are planned to occur to support the proposed playground extension. The existing playground in Stuart Park would remain open during works.

The play space extension was informed by The Playground Project, a collaboration between the University of Wollongong, the Disability Trust and Wollongong City Council. The Playground Project worked with young people and adults with disability including those with intellectual disability, to understand their play preferences. Council officers also talked with young people with disability to find out what they would like included in this space.

Please read the Frequently Asked Questions and view the Concept Design, Site and Location Plans, to find out more about the play space.
