The new Ken Green Park playground now has a shade sail to protect youngsters from the harsh sun.
The playground was installed in December last year without the sail, which sparked a lot of complaints from locals.
Many took to Facebook to voice their frustration that it wasn't installed at the same time as the equipment, saying it was "kind of cruel" of Gunnedah Shire Council.
Others defended the council saying "let's be positive people and thankful for the park".
But two months on and the council has delivered a huge blue shade that fits over the entire equipment.
Located on Stewart Street, the equipment includes a slide, swing set, flying fox, and a koala rocker to tie in the shire's name as the koala capital of the world.
Locals were asked to vote on the design of the playground at the end of last year, and chose this particular option.
It was installed as part of the council's playground renewal project.
The park itself was named after former councillor Ken Green, who served the Gunnedah community in numerous ways.
He was chairman of the Gunnedah District Hospital Board, a Rotarian, long-serving director of the Servicemen's Club board, and president of the Gunnedah branch of the Postal Institute.
Unfortunately, Mr Green collapsed and passed away at just 45 in March 1971.
