Your View: Angus Neill Reserve Playspace

Consultation has concluded

The existing playground at Angus Neill Reserve came up for renewal in the 2017/2018 Annual Business Plan. Council staff saw this as a great opportunity to review this space looking at best practice design principles, integrating nature play elements as a key design principle and the wants and needs of our community. It was decided to create a nature playspace on site due to the research around the benefits of natural playspaces and the natural setting in which the playspace is located.

To establish the design for the new playspace, Council staff engaged with children from St Teresa’s and Seacliff Primary Schools to gather their ideas and feedback on what they thought would make a great space to come and visit with their friends and families. Staff also sought feedback from the wider community through online enagagement and a community engagament day on site at the reserve.

These great ideas were then used by Peter Semple Landscape Artichet and Climbing Tree, to create the design for the new playspace (attached).

Council have been lucky enough to receive some funding through the Fund My Neighbourhood initiative thanks to the Somerton Park Rotary Club.

Council have contract Elton Landscapes to construct Stage 1 of the playspace which will begin on Monday 14 May 2018. We are aiming to have Stage 2 of the playspace constructed by 15 July 2018.

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.
