Kinchington Playgrounds


Wodonga Council will be installing play equipment in estates off Kinchington Rd – Leneva Views Estate and Kinchington Estate.

The two parcels of land sit about 200m apart with connecting roads and paths now completed.

Wodonga Council is committed to the provision of high-quality play environments across the municipality. These should be appropriate, accessible, inclusive, stimulating and challenging.

The two spaces will be developed to complement each other. One as a traditional playground catering predominantly to children from two to 12 years, the other an active recreation space with play elements for older children and adults.

We’re asking the community for their feedback and input as we design these new playgrounds.


Ideas for Leneva Views playground

Leneva Views open space

This playground will be designed for children aged two to 12 years, based on the size and shape of this space.

Key features could include:

  • Medium to large multiplay unit with tower, slides and access for varied ages;
  • Double swing set (with accessible or toddler seat); and,
  • Springer or spinner; and,
  • Additional elements that will add to the variety of play and experience including sensory and accessible features.


Ideas for Kinchington Estate reserve
