Consultation has concluded.

Thanks for your feedback on the planned upgrades at Woomera Reserve. Over the next few months, the upgrade plans will be finalised based on community feedback. You can read the outcomes of the consultation in our community consultation report here.


Randwick Council is embarking on an exciting upgrade of Woomera Reserve at Little Bay, introducing fantastic new additions for more outdoor fun.

  • A new playground for little ones to enjoy
  • Little Bay’s first outdoor gym with training equipment to suit all abilities
  • Upgraded basketball court with line markings
  • Improved connectivity with a new footpath connecting the playground to Esperance Close and Noora Ave

Playground upgrade 

After consulting with our Little Bay community, we’re back with not one, but two fantastic concepts to upgrade the playground. Our two playground concepts are bursting with upgrades you’ll love:

  • Bright, cushiony rubber soft fall
  • A new taller shade cloth
  • Fresh plantings and trees for extra shade
  • Comfy new seats to sit and watch the action
  • All-natural timber play equipment
  • Inclusive fun with a nest swing, challenging balance trail and an in-ground trampoline

The one thing we can’t decide on is the main play tower, and that's where you come in! Which concept should we bring to life?

OPTION 1: Includes 2.4m high tube slide, 1.2m high junior slide, wobbly bridge, climbing net and play panel.

Images from left to right: Play tower, nest swing, balance trail, inground trampoline (wheelchair accessible) and story time chair.


OPTION 2: Includes 1.9m high slide, 0.87m high double junior slide, monkey bars, climbing net, climbing wall and play panel.

Outdoor gym

The new outdoor gym will provide a variety of equipment including a pull-down station, elliptical trainer, chest press, leg press, aerobic cycle, sit up bench, parallel bars, double pull up bars and monkey bars.

The design is suitable for people of all fitness levels and abilities. The equipment will be made from corrosion-resistant material and each piece will come with instructional signage.

Share your thoughts on the concept plan and tell us how and when you will use the new gym.

CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

Don't be fooled 'Australia Made' still ship their parts from other side of the other side of the world. Also, as a neurodivergent I challenge your thought process on 'inclusive' within a play setting, it's a term currently overused, because quite frankly every playground should be for everyone and hey, kindness goes a long way. Randwick needs growth to help businesses and innovation... option 1 is way too outdated and cheap looking stuff, it's everywhere and it's boring. Option 2 looks modern and for wider age group? Slides look fun, not first pick, but it's certainly best pick of the two. Good luck!

1. Always choose Australian Made. It supports our economy and is lower carbon because it hasn't shipped from the other side of the world.
2. Option 1 is more inclusive. I would have thought there would be more inclusive play given the recent re-publication of "Everyone can play" by the NSW Gov?
3. More things for small kids will help reduce accidents.

More shade and big trees that will provide shade is VERY important for any outdoor playground. Big trees also allow for loads of imaginative play.
Like the nest swing and if space allow, would prefer one that swings and turns in 360degrees. Like the one in sir Joseph banks playground. Have seen kids use them and less boring than just back and forth.
Climbing wall or chalkboard wall would be great too.

Both designs have the same problem: not enough swings. Swings are one of my girls favourite activities and they usually go to them first. There should be a couple of regular swings like there are now!

Option 2 provides a wider range of options and more easily shared during peak usage

Will the playground be fenced? Some young children are very uncomfortable with dogs and some owners find it hard to understand. Even though things are well sign posted some dog owners seem to think the rules don't apply to their dog. Fencing seems to help.

I vote for option one if that is made of natural wood.
Let’s blend more with our environment
What about a climbing wall
What about a basketball hoop?
There’s not enough equipment for the older kids 10-12
They get bored very quickly
Playgrounds need to be more older kid friendly
What about a flying Fox?
Build a natural rock wall for climbing?
If not in this park, another.
They love the ground trampoline maybe more of them in other parks too

I like option 1 but would rather have the see saw swing instead of the throne

Kay 6 months ago

Presuming Option 1 will be fenced as well? Agree with need for toilets/amenities close by

missslulubehavesherself 6 months ago

Are we getting any toilets? It’s impossible to plan a big day out or a birthday party without them. Love both designs but option 2 best.

AndyMorton 6 months ago

I like option 2 better, it’s a lot better for older children the climbing frame. I don’t like that option 1 looks unfenced with a sandpit at a dog park. But option 2 I don’t think they need a throne, I’m sure there can be something better you could put in that spot, we go to a park to run and play. Also the seesaw I would rather some swings or something else.

When will the work begin? I thought this was to be complete in 2023?

Mickig63 6 months ago

Where will the gym be located in relation to the children’s play area?

Was there going to be a cycle track around the playground or the wider park area for children to ride bikes safely?

Mickig63 6 months ago

I like the idea of playground 2 best, due to the twin slides, for when you have twins, or two children with you.

However, I like the wheelchair accessible trampoline in playground 1 better.

Also, option 1 playground is quite high and there is no access via a ladder or stairs for adults to get up to children easily should the child need assistance to get down.

If you could fuse option 2 with the option 1 trampoline, I think you have a winning design.

Also could there be a few more benches around the area where older adults can sit and watch grandchildren please..

Mickig63 6 months ago

Can you please do more than one swing? Love the idea of nest swing which is on both options but can it be like in La Perouse park where there is also another normal swing or 2 (seat swing/baby swing) otherwise it’s a parents nightmare negotiating turns.
