Memorial Park Playground
Playground equipment at Lions Park and Memorial Park in Howlong was removed following flood damage in 2016 and because it was very old and did not meet standards. Consultation with the community about play provision in Howlong indicated a strong desire for a second (smaller) playground in addition to the playground at Lowe Square. There was almost unanimous support for this to be at Memorial Park.
Feedback provided by the community as part of the Play Space survey informed the design of this playground and the final plans can be found here(PDF, 3MB).
The design features a number of climbing elements which was the most popular play experience identified in the 102 survey responses.
Construction of the playground at Memorial Park is now complete and we are pleased to advise the site has been re-opened to the public.
