We're renewing the Kellett Reserve Playground, on Malin Street in Kew. Help us design a new playground that better meets the needs of our community.

About the renewal

We’re planning to renew the Kellett Reserve Playground to:

  • improve accessibility
  • provide diverse play opportunities for children of all ages
  • provide long-term enjoyment for families into the future
  • ensure it blends in with the natural parkland and showcases Melbourne's city views.

We've prioritised Kellett Reserve Playground for renewal under our Playground Replacement Program because some equipment is ageing and the posts in the timber structures are starting to rot.

About the existing playground

The current playground was built in 2004 and discreetly blends into the park's surroundings, maintaining the reserve's natural character. It features equipment designed for toddlers and young children, including two play units, a climbing wall, a teacup carousel, slides, rocker and swings.

This playground is classified as a local playground in Boroondara's Playground Development Strategy. For a quick summary of what that means, see the question panel on the right of this page.
