This project is to undertake revitalization of three key playground sites across North East Tasmania.
Finalizing costings. Once complete concept plans will be presented.
Site 1: Major Upgrade - Children’s Reserve - Scottsdale
29 George Street, Scottsdale
The Children’s Reserve is the main playground in town and is a popular choice for birthday parties and play dates. This project will transform this park by replacing several of the main elements in the playground and creating a community hub/destination style playground that will provide multi use spaces for informal gatherings, relaxation and play. Elements that target various age groups, in particular infants and toddlers will be included to create a multi-generational space with a focus on open-ended play.
Site 2: Major Upgrade - Branxholm Park - Branxholm
1-7 Scott Street, Branxholm
Branxholm Park is situated adjacent to the Branxholm Camping Ground and Swimming Pool and is a popular spot for campers and locals alike. Upgrade to the BBQ’s at the park is planned in order to value add/complement this project which will see the upgrade of the main combination equipment piece.
Site 3: Minor Upgrade – Winnaleah Playground – Winnaleah
13 Main Street, Winnaleah
Winnaleah playground is centrally located in town and a popular place for locals. While catering well for school aged children and, to an extent, older children/teenagers the playground lacks key elements in making it a holistic play space for the community. This project will rectify this through provision of landscaping and additional play elements.
This project was initiated as a result of feedback and data collated as part of the Playground Facility Audit Report.
This project has been funded by the Open Spaces Grants Program ($200,000) and Dorset Council.
