Construction has now started on a fantastic new community recreation park in Moncrieff for the residents of north Gungahlin.
With a variety of facilities and equipment to cater for a range of uses the new Moncrieff Community Recreation Park, at the corner of O’Keefe Avenue and Gussey Street, will be a destination for both fun and fitness.
One of three playgrounds in Moncrieff, this recreation park will be a well utilised community asset and popular meeting place for local residents. As well as having a Canberra-first learn-to-ride circuit, the park will include:
- playground areas to suit a range of ages
- barbecue areas with picnic tables, seating and shade
- outdoor gym equipment
- a multi-sport court to cater for sports such as basketball, futsal and volleyball
- table tennis tables
- volleyball nets
- cricket nets
- a drinking fountain
- bike racks
Construction of the recreation park will be a complex project, with the procurement of specialist play equipment as well as the installation of large irrigated turf areas for sport and recreation activities.
The recreation park is expected to be completed in late 2017.
