UPDATE | Lion's Park Playground

Works to upgrade Cooktown's much-loved Lion's Park Playground are progressing, however ongoing challenges with sourcing and supply chains have pushed back the estimated completion date to late October 2021. 

Fully funded by the COVID Works for Queensland program, the Lion's Park project includes replacement of the current playground equipment with brand new, state-of-the-art equipment, a fenced play enclosure featuring a soft-fall safety surface, and installation of a new, heritage-style roof structure that is consistent with other roofed structures in the park, provides much-needed shade, and an all-weather play area that also offers full UV protection.

For more information about the project, please read the initial media release here.
