Bill Black Park playground upgrade


Wodonga Council proposes to upgrade the playground in Bill Black Park, in Jason Circuit.

The existing three pieces of play equipment - a see-saw, swings and a climbing playset - were installed in 1993 and are due to be replaced part of council’s Playground Strategy 2016-2020.

The proposed new equipment includes:
- A truck play unit;
- Rock wall;
- Wheelchair carousel;
- Nest swing;
- Toddler swing; and,
- Climbing ropes

Council wants to know what playground users and the wider community think of the proposed new equipment.

This park was named after Bill Black, a Wodonga resident who was active in the community, president of the Wodonga Football Club and member of the Lions Club. Mr Black joined Bradford Kendall foundries in 1954 and later took over the management of the Wodonga plant for 30 years until his retirement.

Wodonga has more than 70 playgrounds and a map of the city’s playgrounds and amenities is available on our website here

Thank you to everyone who gave feedback - what you said made a difference.

Because of what people told us, we made some changes and the playground will now also have:

-      A shade sail;
-      A water bubbler;
-      A second toddler slide, which can be easily accessed by young children;
-      A mini two-seat rocker;
-      To cater for younger children, a planned wobbly rope bridge will be replaced with a more stable belt bridge;
-      A picnic table that is accessible for people in wheelchairs; and,
-      An additional bin
