Your View: Angus Neill Reserve Playspace

Consultation has concluded

This Engagement has concluded
We would like to thank everyone who contributed during our community engagement process to seek ideas and feedback for a new nature playspace at Angus Neill Reserve, Seacliff.

We received a great response from the community with 230 community members contributing their ideas and opinions around what would make a great place to play. We're very excited to have more than 80 percent of engagement coming from young people between the ages of 5 to 12 years, who will be prominent users of the new playspace.

We have summarised the data collected into an Engagement Report highlighting the key themes identified during our engagement.

Next Steps

  • Engage a consultant to create two concept designs and costings for a fun and engaging playspace that allows children to connect with nature and use their imagination to create a multitude of play opportunities. The designs will meet or exceed relevant Australian Standards where applicable.

  • Create a space that encompasses a range of the ideas contributed by local children, young people and adults, to encourage a sense of ownership of the space.

  • Create concepts that allows Council to source or create majority of play and landscape elements in house.

  • Create a space that utilises exisiting shade structures along with other exisiting landscape features such as the Easter ‘hill’ and natural shade.

  • Council aims to deliver the new playspace by late 2017 to early 2018.
