Playground Upgrade

A neighbourhood level playground and reserve upgrade are planned for the Glandore Community Centre Reserve under the Playground Framework. This includes the existing Marie Gregan playground.

This reserve upgrade will beautify the grounds and outdoor area. A draft plan has been developed and consultation occurred in June 2020. The consultation report, postcard and draft concept plan are viewable below.

Feedback is being reviewed and, where possible, will be incorporated into the final design. Once the final design has been completed it will be made available here later this year. Construction will commence in early to mid-2021.

Project Timescales
2020/2021 Financial Year | Construction
2019/2020 Financial Year | Design and consultation

You can explore the rest of the grounds at Glandore Community Centre.

About Marie Gregan

Recognising Marie Gregan

Marie Gregan served as a City of Marion Councillor from 1987 to 1993 (East Ward, Ward 1).

She campaigned to stop the Mobile Library service from being closed, was a strong supporter of the Glandore Community Centre and worked tirelessly to improve services and policy with the aged community.

After a prolonged battle with cancer she passed away on 6 May 1993.

The naming of the playground was the way the community chose to acknowledge her service (Council purchased the Glandore Community Centre from the State Government later in 1995).
