World's largest playground for Darling Harbour

SYDNEY - Sydney's Darling Harbour will soon boast the city's largest and most expensive playground.

Work has started on the 4000 square metre playground in front of the Sydney Convention and Exhibition Centre.

It will feature a large climbing rope structure, a sand pit with digging implements, a flying fox and a giant slide.

More than 28 million people visit Darling Harbour in the city's centre each year and the new playground is expected to attract more visitors to the area, NSW minister for planning Tony Kelly said.

The A$8 ($10.38) million playground is part of the A$500 million redevelopment of Darling Walk by Lend Lease and the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority.
