Brockman Reserve - Playground Upgrade - Which design would you like?

The City is progressing with an upgrade of the playground equipment at Brockman Reserve and invites your feedback on your preference on the proposed options.

Brockman Reserve is a local park within Dalkeith which provides a playground and grassed open space which services the needs of the residents in nearby streets (usually within a radius of 400 metres or a five-minute walk).

This project is to upgrade the playground to achieve increased accessibility for all users and to ensure the equipment complies with the relevant Australian Standards.

The options presented includes a traditional modular style playground and a nature playground. Both options incorporate an area of rubberised soft fall, for equal access purposes and white sand for therapeutic play purposes.
