Council is upgrading the playground at Warrimoo Oval. Community consultation was undertaken to inform the design of the Local playground in January 2021. Council’s landscape architects have developed a concept design in response to the community’s input. This consultation resulted in a variety of differing opinions on inclusions for the upgrade. Council is delivering an inclusive play space based on this feedback.
About the playground
This playspace is categorised as a local playground. Local playgrounds generally cater for residents within walking distance and are not designed to attract users from much further afield. They are the most common category of playgrounds within the Council and usually do not include facilities such as toilets as they are intended for shorter stays.
Our goal for the upgrade is to create an attractive, engaging and inclusive community place for everyone to enjoy. It will be a place to meet, play and relax that enhances the local neighbourhood and growing residential community. The concept design for this local park includes:
- A playground catering for a range of age groups and abilities
- Range of passive, imaginative and active play activities including inclusive play equipment
- A drinking fountain, bins, picnic bench
- Rubber/mulch soft fall
- Nature play elements
- Associated landscaping works and shade trees
- Formal and informal seating options
- Upgraded footpath access from car park area
- Accessible car space
- Multi-purpose court
- Upgrade existing amenities (Stage 2)
Please note the final plan may undergo some changes as the project continues to progress through the detailed design and construction process.
