Stud Park playground is one of our most popular playgrounds. It is enjoyed by the community daily.
Earlier this year we asked for your feedback on topics including:
- what you love about the park
- your favourite parts of the playground
- ideas and suggestions for the new playspace.
Thanks for sharing with us.
Using your ideas, we have developed a concept plan (pictured below) that we would like your input on.
A detailed design will be prepared for the new playground based on your feedback.
The proposed design concept is farmyard themed, reflecting the farming heritage of the Rowville area.
Some of the key features of the new playground include a windmill tower with spiral slide, a life-size accessible tractor for children to climb and a water misting play area for summer fun.
The new playground will be fully fenced and have access gates in three locations.
Additional picnic seating is included in several areas of the playground as well as picnic shelters.
Knox City Council is dedicated to creating a playspace where all children can play. This means everyone, no matter their ability, age, cultural and social background, can play together side-by-side. It means parents, grandparents and carers feel welcome too.
Following the motto of 'Can I get there?' 'Can I play?' and 'Can I stay?' the design reflects these considerations. It ensures that the playground is accessible for the whole journey including arriving at the carpark, accessing play equipment and using public facilities.
The design endeavors to include wheelchair-accessible ramps to as many parts of the new playground as possible.
Also included will be a PODD communication board to identify playground elements with images for children who struggle to express themselves verbally.
Each playground area will have a guide to the type of play including: motion play, imagination play, sensory play and social play.
