Playgrounds throughout the Meander Valley are expected to benefit from upgrades later this month, which will challenge users, improve fitness, and cater to a wider range of ages.
Works are underway at Blackstone Park, Bordin Street Reserve, and Coronea Court Reserve.
Meander Valley Council mayor Wayne Johnston said the upgrades were important for the community.
"Recreational space helps keep our community active and engaged and it's important that these spaces offer a range of experiences," he said.
"The improvements at Blackstone Park are designed to cater for a broader age range and complement the Park's foreshore location."
The improvements for the park were largely driven by community feedback, with the Blackstone Heights Community News Association playing an active role in the project's design.

"Local residents provided their feedback on a number of options and equipment that provides opportunities for challenge appealed the most," Cr Johnston said.
The additional equipment being installed at the Bordin Street Reserve's playground was in line with the community's initiatives to provide equipment for young children and toddlers.
"These upgrades will improve usage and build on the new equipment installed last year," Cr Johnston said.
Work is underway on all three locations, and upgrades are expected to be complete by the end of July.
