As part of our playspace renewal program, we are planning to upgrade the following local playspaces in 2022:

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

Before we begin the design work, we would like to hear from you and your ideas for the playspace.

Please complete the following online survey for your local playspace by Thursday 23rd Sept 2021.

All comments received will inform the playspace upgrades, considering what items might be best suited in this space and as budget allows.

Update on our upgrades for 2021

We are upgrading four local playspaces starting in early September 2021 with new equipment for all age groups which aimed to increase visibility, improve park amenities and encourage nature-based play.

The local playspaces to be upgraded in 2021 include:

  • Alberni Reserve Playspace, Rowville
  • Allora Reserve Playspace, Ferntree Gully
  • Otway Reserve Playspace, Knoxfield
  • Starlight Reserve Playspace, Rowville
  • Please note: Knox Athletics Playspace, Knoxfield has been rescheduled to be upgraded in 2022/23 to align with the Knox Athletics Track renewal works

The following engagement has happened so far:

  • 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/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.

We have finalised the tender process with construction taking place between September and December 2021.
