Belvoir Park playground


Belvoir Park is Wodonga’ s Regional Park. It is situated at Sumsion Gardens and is the premium play space in Wodonga. It provides a wide range of play activities for all ages and abilities.

The existing Belvoir Park playground was established in 2010.

The council is now beginning Stage 2 of the playground to be located directly beside the existing main play space.

In 2022, the community was consulted on the park's design.

The playground will have two flying foxes and a “ninja warrior” adventure obstacle course that has a smartphone app so people can time themselves, their friends and family and try to make it to a top 20 leaderboard.

The playground will also include:

  • An all-abilities carousel that can fit two wheelchairs;
  • A rope “snake swing” that up to six children can ride at once;
  • A 4-metre high twisted slide and a second, smaller slide for young children;
  • A 7.3-metre climbing tower with platforms and peep holes;
  • A 3-metre climbing boulder; and,
  • A new covered, wheelchair accessible shelter with picnic tables and a three-burner barbecue;
  • A drinking fountain;
  • Basket swing; and,
  • A low, see-through fence between the new playground and the lake to help keep young children safe.

A new start date for construction has been set, following a delay caused by flooding. Work will now begin on February 6, 2023, and is expected to be completed by the end of June 2023.

Timeline
  • Consultation
    August

    More than 250 children, parents and carers had their say and the new playground at Belvoir Park is now officially “coming soon”.

  • Fencing goes up
    Friday, October 14, 2022

    From Monday, October 17, you'll start to see the temporary fencing installed around the work site.

    This will impact the open space behind the existing playground as well as the Osborne St car park. See alternative parking options here.

    Following the wet winter and spring, the large work site allows for machinery use and the storage of equipment and materials. The car park is required for the contractor site office and to provide safe access to the site for contractors and machinery.

  • Work to start
    Monday, February 6, 2023

    Extensive flooding in winter and spring caused delays but the site will soon become fully accessible as it dries out. Construction will start on Monday, February 6, 2023 and is scheduled for completion by the end of June, 2023.
