The consultation has concluded. Thank you for participating.

About the project:

Cormorant Drive Reserve, Hallett Cove, is a local level playground designed to cater for people living and working within walking distance. These spaces are less developed with limited play equipment.

The site is a beautiful, natural location that will be enhanced with play elements that are sensitive to, and harmonious with, the natural surrounds.

The reserve has an interesting history with a Diprotodon (Giant Wombat) fossil remains found here in 1992. This Australian megafauna was the world’s largest marsupial and lived between 150,000-10,000 years ago. The playground will have an exciting and educational Diprotodon theme, making it a truly unique reserve.

Key elements of the design include:

  • Diprotodon sculpture climb
  • Diprotodon sand pit 
  • Hill Slide
  • Swings
  • Megafauna interactive search and find game
  • Nature play rocks and logs
  • Extension of existing rubble path
  • New Picnic Table and Bench Seat
  • Drinking fountain

Community Engagement Phase

A draft concept design was available for community feedback. During consultation, a community drop in session was held at Cormorant Drive Reserve on Thursday 2 December 4-6pm. Consultation closed on 21 December 2021. 

What's next?

A summary of the community engagement and the final concept plan can now be viewed.  The project will be progressing to detailed design and construction during the 2022/23 financial year.
