The new adventure playground at Wagga Wagga’s Botanic Gardens has been popular with visitors since the Entwine project was completed late last year.

Families with young children in particular have taken advantage of the unique play space during the school holidays.

Wagga Wagga City Council Project Manager Tom Lemerle said the Botanic Gardens precinct has been abuzz with activity.

“It’s a popular area for all ages … there’s the zoo and aviary which is always a great attraction and plenty of recreation areas to enjoy and relax as part of the whole Gardens precinct experience,” Mr Lemerle said.

“The Entwine project includes a new nature-based adventure playground, signage and accessible pathways along with the refurbishment of the Brolga Pond outdoor event area. This project was completed on time and on budget in a challenging year dictated by the pandemic and delivers new spaces for the local community and visitors to the City to enjoy.

The $930,000 Entwine project was funded through a $739,466 grant from the NSW Regional Growth – Environment & Tourism Fund with the balance contributed by Wagga Wagga City Council.
