We are planning to upgrade the following playgrounds in 2022:

  • Grange Drive, Lysterfield
  • Heritage Way, Lysterfield
  • Karoo Road, Rowville.

We invite you to have your say about your local playground.

New playspace designs have been created based on community feedback gathered last year, and we would like to hear your feedback.

Please complete the survey/s below for your local playspace by Thursday 3 February 2022.

Update on our upgrades in 2021

Thank you for sharing your ideas and thoughts on local playground upgrades in 2021.

We are about to finish upgrading 4 playspaces with new equipment for all age groups, with the aim of:

  • increasing visibility
  • improving park amenities
  • encouraging nature-based play.

We completed the following upgrades in December 2021

  • Alberni Reserve Playspace, Rowville
  • Allora Reserve Playspace, Ferntree Gully
  • Starlight Reserve Playspace, Rowville.

Photos can be seen in the document library below.

We will complete Otway Reserve Playspace, Knoxfield by the end of February 2022.

How did your feedback guide the playground design?

  • In December 2020, we asked the community what they currently like about the playspaces, what could be improved and what they would like to see in these reserves. Based on this feedback we developed concept plans in for each reserve.
  • In February and March 2021, we asked what the community thought of the proposed concept plans. The flyers available to download in the document library include the draft concept plans and further information for each reserve.
  • In September 2021, we finalised the tender process and kicked off the constructions.

Note: Knox Athletics Playspace in Knoxfield has been rescheduled to be upgraded in 2022 to 2023 to align with the Knox Athletics Track renewal works.
