Background

Council sought community ideas on what could be included in the new playspace by Tuesday 23 May 2017.

The playspace was initially proposed for Oak Tree Park in the Montpellier Gardens Estate, in response to a petition received in 2015 requesting a space for local children to enjoy.

However, during community consultation it was suggested that Arthur Street Reserve (also in Montpellier Estate), would be a more suitable site for the playspace.

Council is grateful to the many residents who provided feedback on the playspace and has allocated $144k to the project which will highlight the estate's history as the original home of the Brockhoff Biscuit Factory.

The local community provided great ideas for the design of the playspace, with key elements to include a play unit with a climbing net and a swing set with a basket swing.
