What is planned?
We are planning to upgrade the existing playspace and provide some additional elements in this reserve, along with some park infrastructure improvements.
We will be consulting and undertaking design/procurement this financial year (before June 2024) and doing most of the construction the following financial year (before June 2025).
You can view the latest consultation summary report.
We are also undertaking some essential park infrastructure improvement works including an improved maintenance access and replacement taller pool fencing with self-closing gates. These works will be completed before mid December 2023.

How can the community influence this project?
What can be influenced?
- What type of play would you like to see in the playspace upgrade (e.g. swinging, climbing, sliding, balancing, spinning, etc) and for what child age ranges?
- What additional elements would you like included in this reserve (e.g. garden beds, buffer planting, trees, gathering space, street art)?
- Additional park furniture and fixtures (e.g. seating, drinking fountain)?
- Anything you can think of to make the space feel unique?
What can't be changed?
- The upgrade will only cover the reserve and the playspace, not surrounding areas (e.g. roads, car parking, lighting, services etc)
- The existing playspace will be repositioned to a more central location in the reserve to reduce impacts on an adjacent large tree and proximity of a neighbouring property
- Large sized play elements cannot be included (e.g. flying fox, tower combination unit etc) owing to lack of space and proximity of neighbouring properties
- Sports grounds and their facilities will not be included
- Unless trees are dead or in decline they will not be removed as part of the works
- Some park infrastructure elements need to be upgraded (e.g. park fencing)
- The works must fit into the available budget.
