Latest news


Deepwater Park Play Space, Milperra was highlighted in Council’s ‘Playgrounds and Play Spaces Strategic Plan’ as a top 25 priority to improve the space. The recommendation from this plan was to create a play space destination that is unique and of high quality, to nature play and increase the size and importance of the space. This includes introducing more amenities, equipment and seating.

In 2019 the Deepwater Park and Kelso Parklands Plan of Management was adopted by Council, which has been used to guide the future uses of Deepwater Park. The outcome of this was to dedicate the area to public use in the form of a play space, for the local community and future generations to enjoy.

This proposal

From the recommendations outlined in the Playgrounds and Play Spaces Strategic Plan, we have created a draft play space concept design incorporating new equipment, seating, amenities and landscaping for visitors of all ages and abilities to enjoy.

The draft design includes:

  • A family-friendly space with seats, tables and picnic shelters
  • A range of active and passive play experiences
  • Bike paths with educational traffic elements
  • Ocean themed play equipment
  • A new play space for all abilities

Read the draft plan and let us know what you think by completing the survey below. The results of this survey will help inform what features will be included in the play space.
