Consultation has concluded

Thank you to everyone who provided their feedback on the concept plan for a new and upgraded play space along the Warrandyte River Reserve.

The consultation is now complete and the results showed there was a good level of support for the new play space, designed to connect children with nature and offer play opportunities for children of all ages and abilities.

Overall, the community were in favour of concept's direction, including the natural look and feel of the space.

However there was large support for the existing grass space to remain, therefore we've adjusted the size of the play

However there was large support for the existing grass space to remain, therefore we've adjusted the size of the play space.

Changes to the final design include:

  • retention of the open grass space
  • reduced number of picnic tables
  • smaller footprint on the main structure
  • one less spinner.

The stage two upgrade includes:

  • full play space design and upgrade
  • new shelter, drinking fountain, BBQ, picnic area to accompany the play space
  • new art piece are with an indigenous focus and community art piece.

Works on the upgrade of the play space are anticipated to begin early 2022 and to be completed by June 2022. The existing play space will be completely removed for the duration of works.

Check out the final design, and stay tuned for more updates.

    Check out this colourful art piece next time you’re down at Lions Park along the Warrandyte River Reserve.

    During the Warrandtye Pottery Expo this year, Warrandyte ceramic artist Jane Annois and Clay Talk at Montsalvat led a children’s art activity in creating these colourful ‘leaves’ representing leaves from the local area. In June, our landscaper Crafted Landscape installed the new art element along the path edging by the new shelter under the bridge.

    Special thanks to Clayworks Potters Supply in providing the clay, colours and firing, and Clay Talk at Montsalvat for donating their time with the children.

    The Warrandyte Pottery Expo is an annual event on the last weekend of February. It is proudly supported by the Manningham Arts Grants.
