Playground and swing set at Cooks Paddock, Paddington


You vote, we build

Woollahra Council is upgrading the playground at Cook's Paddock and we want YOU to select the design!

Located on Victoria Street, Paddington, Cook's Paddock is a small but well-loved playspace. In recent times, the community has told us that it is in need of some extra attention to make it a place that kids will enjoy for many years to come.

To give the playground a refresh, we've engaged three playground architects to design a new play space that can be delivered within a budget of $50,000, while retaining the existing swing set.

We are now putting all three designs up to a popular vote, giving the community a chance to choose their favourite. The design with the most votes at survey close on Wednesday 10 February 2021 will become the chosen option, with construction estimated to commence in mid-2021.

To see the full concept designs and list of features, download the documents at the right hand side of this page (click on the link that says See the 3 complete playground designs here).If the files don't open automatically check your downloads folder and you should find them there.
