The playground at Central Avenue Reserve has reached the end of its useful life and will be upgraded.

The purpose of this consultation is to seek community feedback about whether the new playground is built at Central Avenue Reserve or Fryer Street Reserve.

At the General Council meeting held 26 June 2018 Council endorsed a motion to undertake community consultation (GC260618M03).

Construction of a new playground is a two year process:
Year 1 (18/19) Consultation and Design
Year 2 (19/20) Construction of a new playground


Consideration has been given to joining the two reserves at Central Avenue between Second and Third Streets as indicated as Option 3 on the map.

This is process that can take up to a year and, if supported by the community, the potential road closure will coincide with the construction of the new playground.


Consultation will begin Monday 13 August 2018 and close Monday 3 September 2018.

During this time you are invited to provide feedback on the potential location of the playground and potential road closure by visiting the Making Marion project page and completing the survey.
