Kingsford Smith Ulm Reserve, Glenroy - Park upgrade

Kingsford-Smith-Ulm Reserve GlenroyProject overview

The play space at Kingsford Smith Ulm Reserve in Glenroy was selected for upgrade along with a new shared use path for the park, with funding for these projects allocated from Council’s capital works program.

A Draft Play space Concept Plan was developed for the park including the new play space and nature play area:

  • A new play space to be constructed in place of the existing carpark, including combination unit with monkey bars, slide and cargo rope play, plus a double swing with ‘bird nest’ swing, as well as ‘egg’ carousel spinner and rocker play items
  • Existing old play equipment replaced with a nature play area featuring boulders, tree trunks and log round steppers, plus an earth berm with rocks and native groundcovers in place of the steel mesh fencing around the perimeter
  • Extensive shade tree planting in and around the play space and nature play areas
  • New steel framed park seats and picnic setting to replace old timber furniture
  • Repairs to existing access road into the park and fresh gravel topping to road surface
  • New timber and steel rail fencing with padlocked steel gate for service vehicle access in place of existing bollards and chain, to prevent unauthorised vehicle entry, and
  • Connector path at the bottom of the street linking into the new shared use path.

Community consultation sessions were held in December 2015. People were invited to submit their feedback on the draft concept plans for the park and play space projects.
