A new play space was created in September 2015 as part of the Merlynston Linear Park - Development (Stage 1), featuring nature play elements, play equipment and new native plantings. Soon after, a basketball half court was installed at the park.
In dog off-leash parks you must still keep your dog under control. In all other public places, dogs must be kept in control with a leash, cord or chain. Dogs are prohibited from the area around playgrounds or within creeks.
