  • Background

    6 months ago

    The existing playground is set in a large open grassed area, north of Belrose Tennis Centre, and is accessed via Wingara Grove. An existing main pathway running through the reserve, connects the playground to adjoining residential streets, Belrose Shopping Centre, Glen Street Theatre and other community facilities.

    A new layout for the playground space was developed by Council staff, which proposes to shift the playground footprint to take advantage of natural shade from existing stands of trees, and provide a circulation path linking the playground to the main pathway. Quotations are being sought from playground companies for playground design options for the new layout.

    We are seeking feedback on four playground design options from the community for consideration and assisting staff evaluate quotations and select the preferred design option.
