Work is well under way on the Point’s next green area – Western Park on Sidney Wallingford Way, between Mapou Road and Clark Road. The artist’s impression you see here has Sidney Wallingford Way on the right-hand side.

The site is currently teeming with trucks and tradies, and it promises to supply a good new outdoor play space for older children. Equipment will include a scaling wall, an uneven balance beam, a wobbly log, in-ground trampolines, a ring swing and spinner plates. There’ll also be a roofed sitting area with built-in barbecue, similar to that at the park on Ponga Street, as well as a broad grassed area and plenty of trees to soften the landscape.
