Community helps pick new Riverside Stage 2 regionally significant playground concept design

Council's recent playground poll received more than 1800 responses. Based on the Riverside Stage 2 project team's assessment and community feedback, the Council's preferred playground sub-contractor is Moduplay, Option 2 design, which is an adventure playground inspired by parts of Wagga Wagga's history. The design was a clear winner with community members and will now be built as a key feature in the development.

The playground will have components of design inspired by paddle steamers which once travelled the Murrumbidgee River and the Wagga Water Whizz slide which was located at the beach precinct. It includes a mix of standard playground equipment and aims to cater for different ages and abilities.

Huon Contractors was selected to carry out the design and construct of the overall project.

Construction is expected to start in June this year with a proposed completion date in mid 2022.
