PLAYGROUND UPGRADE

Central Avenue Reserve, Hallett Cove is scheduled for a ‘neighbourhood playground’ upgrade in the Playground Framework located at the southern end of the site.

Additional features have been considered due to the upgrade from local to neighbourhood level upgrade.

Construction is anticipated in 2020.

Consultation to concept plan

Community Consultation was undertaken in September and November 2018. Extensive feedback confirmed that there was a need for a higher service level playground in the area compared to the proposed local level. Council endorsed the upgraded classification to ‘Neighbourhood level’ at a Special General Council Meeting on 25 November 2019 (SGC191125M05, page 64) and resolved the following:

1. The Central Avenue Reserve re-development be upgraded to a neighbourhood level playground based on the current gaps in provision of playgrounds in the area.

2. Council endorse funding the additional amount of $140,250 to increase hierarchy of Central Avenue Reserve from local to neighbourhood in the 2020/2021 budget with an increase of operations and maintenance cost of $9,818 per annum and depreciation of $5,610 per annum in the Long Term Financial Plan.

3. Note the upgrade will be delivered across financial years with the existing budget of $95,250 still timed for 2019/20.

As a result, we now have a Final Concept plan for the Neighbourhood level playground in the south part and open space treatment plan for the northern portion of the site.

Proposed Timeline for the project is as follows:

  • Final Concept Plan- June 2020
  • Design Documentation – July to Aug 2020
  • Procurement – Sept 2020
  • Construction to Commence - Oct 2020

You can view the plans, council report and consultation findings below.

Project History

Initial consultation in August 2018 sought community feedback about whether the playground should be situated at Central Avenue Reserve or Fryer Street Reserve. Community feedback was also sought to potentially close a portion of Central Avenue.

Northern Side

The northern side of the reserve is a dog off-leash area and features a swale, shady pine trees and a picnic table.
