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 June 2017, Merlynston Linear Park - Development (Stage 2) was completed and included a shade structure, barbecue, picnic table and drink fountain being constructed alongside the play space.
Walking your dog
At off-leash dog parks you must still keep your dog under control. You can find out more about these rules on our Park amenities and equipment page.
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.
