Centenary Park Playground Redevelopment

We are expanding the play experience, accessibility and appeal of the Centenary Park playground in East Bentleigh.

The existing playground has a focus towards younger play and does not include all abilities access, imaginative play elements or challenging pieces for older children. Additionally, the age of the equipment increases the frequency and cost of repair, and replacement parts are becoming difficult to source.

Council has secured a State Government funding commitment of up to $250,000 to provide a stand-alone basketball / netball area with social seating and a bouldering/climbing wall located in the playground - images of these concept designs are included on this page. An additional 3-point basketball ring and social seating will also be provided at the open end of the cricket nets which will provide further recreation opportunities for our community.

Thank you to everyone who completed the survey. We had 197 completed surveys. We are now collating and reviewing everyone's feedback. We will keep you informed. Check back here for updates.

If you have any question please contact the Recreation & Open Space Team at recservices@gleneira.vic.gov.au or 9524 3333.
