Latrobe Council


New multi-age playground opens at Bosworth Park, featuring megadeck - one of only two in Tasmania!

A multi-age playground at ‘Bosworth Park’ on the corner of Cotton and Stanley Streets, Latrobe has kept nearby residents busily monitoring its progress and is now open for play.

Initially identified as open space in Latrobe Council’s Recreation Area Development Plan several years ago, the surge in surrounding housing development and household composition has supported a reconsideration of use, with Latrobe Council developing the site for passive recreation.

Allocating $100,000 with an additional $45,000 received through the Tasmanian Government’s Community Infrastructure Fund, enabled Latrobe Council to develop a playground that features a MegaDeck Tower, only one of two in Tasmania, as well as a swing set with bird’s nest, spinner seat, rocker, carousal and supernova.

Bench seating and landscaping continue within this space along with future tree installations along Cotton Street.

Subject to funding availability, future stages will include a toilet block, pathway linkages, barbecue shelters and further recreational equipment.
