About the design

Playspace 1 is designed to have something for the whole family.

Based on community feedback the main playground was relocated into the larger reserve.

Fencing is proposed to inhibit movement towards the roadways.

The equipment is proposed to meet the needs of a wide variety of ages and abilities and includes rubber surfacing around accessible elements.

The shelter central to both the playground and half-court basketball area provides a shaded gathering area for families.

Garden beds and plantings are placed around the reserve to attract local wildlife and act as a natural barrier to other interfaces.

Please note that the pieces of equipment pictured are included to provide an example of the style of equipment which may be included. The final pieces will be dependent on which company is the successful tenderer.

Does both play spaces include shade cloth? Is there equipment for younger children aged 1year -2yrs? Is there disability swing consideration

A more solid bridge instead of rope bridge connecting the 2 sections to suit the kids with shorter legs to be able to use the slides!

Play module - Consider replacing netting ladder/bridge with a wooden bridge so children of all ages can climb between both sections.

Has the noise from continual bouncing basketball’s been considered for surrounding homes to the park area?

- More shaded areas for parents and carers to sit under - more area for older kids, we have a lot of 13 - 16 in our estate walking streets

Love the half court, it will be such a hit with our kids and create lots of friendships. Maybe an area for ‘down ball’ would be great too!

I feel this is better suited to younger kids. Lots of young families are building in Kinchington. I will use this lots more than the other.

Like the modular set up. Don’t like the spring play. Maybe replace with spin type equipment like at new belvoir park. Or zip line. Great

Playground looks great as suitable to a variety of ages. Mixture of enclosed stairs and ladder give variety to play. Love the two slides.
