About the project

We are renewing the Grovedale Park playground to better meet the needs of all children.

In December 2021, our community shared their memories, stories and ideas for the playground. You can find out more about our first consultation here. We used this feedback to help us develop a draft concept design.

Our community then shared their thoughts on the draft concept design in March/April 2022. Your feedback has been used to shape the final concept design ahead of works on the playground commencing in the 2022-23 financial year.

Implementation of proposed works will be subject to funding availability and approval.

Our final concept design

The final concept design has kept the parts of the playground our community love most. It also shows where new equipment will improve the playground.

The main features of the final concept design that has been updated based on community feedback include:

  • a new seating area
  • a new basket swing
  • trees and plantings we chose for their connection to the area
  • a new play structure and climbing cube with monkey bars
  • updating the blueberry spinner and existing swings
  • an accessible path into and around the playground.

The playground's colour scheme will be mainly green and timber to ensure it blends into the natural landscape.

You can view key parts of the draft concept design by selecting the Hotspots below.
