Lancaster Reserve located at 11 Nelson Avenue, Newcomb is a local Playground located within walking or bike riding distance from homes, catering primarily for children aged 3-7 years, with standard access to all levels.

As part of the City's Play Strategy, this playground has been identified for renewal in 2024.

We would love to hear your thoughts on the proposed plan for the redesigned playground. It is proposed the redesign will include:

  • Double swing (toddler and all ages)
  • Junior Wave slide
  • Toddler slide with stair access
  • Shop counter
  • Scramble net
  • Catwalk bridge
  • Spiderweb climber
  • Monkey bars
  • Steering wheel

Please view the plan below and provide your feedback by completing our short survey.


When we are renewing our playgrounds we will make sure there is:

  • somewhere to run;
  • somewhere to swing;
  • somewhere to slide; and
  • somewhere to climb.

The current playground equipment will be replaced with new equipment, a seat will be installed and trees planted for shade. The surface around the play equipment will remain as soft fall (playground safe tan bark).

This renewal does not include fixed shade structures, water play, an increase in playground size or change of playground hierarchy (i.e. this playground will remain a local playground).
