Parsons Grove Reserve, Park Holme

Consultation for this project was open from 3 April 2018 until 26 April 2018.

BACKGROUND

In 2017, the City of Marion endorsed a Playground Framework to ensure the community’s playgrounds were well-designed, well-located, safe and fun for users.

In the last 8 years, 41 playgrounds have been upgraded and an additional 13 are currently in the process of being designed or constructed.

As part of the Playground Framework, a number of playgrounds will be upgraded and some will be removed to ensure that:

  • Current and future playgrounds are renewed at appropriate times to ensure safety of the community.
  • Playgrounds are in an accessible location and spread as evenly as possible throughout the City of Marion – this may include removal of playgrounds due to oversupply in a particular area. Additionally, it may include new playgrounds to address a deficiency in an area.
  • Council resources are used effectively, in line with Council’s strategic objectives of keeping rates as low as possible whilst providing services that are fair and equitable throughout the City of Marion.


PLAYGROUND FRAMEWORK IMPLEMENTATION

The playground equipment at Parsons Grove Reserve has reached the end of its life expectancy and will be removed.

Construction is underway for a new Hendrie Street Reserve Inclusive Playground. The removal is planned in line with the construction of this playground which will near completion towards the end of June 2018.

Council undertakes a playground removal program annually, and the removal has been coordinated with other playground removals in order to achieve a cost saving to Council.

We propose to replace the playground with minor landscaping, additional trees and a citrus/nut orchard.

The existing trees, seating and pathway will remain.

For more information:

You have the opportunity to provide us with your thoughts and feedback about the concept plans for your local reserve. please visit Playground Removal and Concept Design Feedback by 5pm 26 April 2018.

All feedback will be collated and a report provided to Council prior to works commencing.
