Residents are being invited to give their input on three new playgrounds across the Cardinia Shire with a new online tool that helps participants choose the type of equipment they would like included.
Cardinia Shire Council is planning to upgrade playgrounds, including Keith Ewenson Park inUpper Beaconsfield, Kath Roberts Reserve in Beaconsfield and Redwood Road Playground in Gembrook, as part of the annual playground renewal program.
The online tool allows residents to select their favourite pieces of equipment to create their ideal playground with a set budget.
Cardinia Shire Council mayor Jeff Springfield said the council is committed to providing high-quality play spaces across the municipality.
“We encourage everyone to get involved in our playground renewal consultation. Community feedback is important to these projects as these facilities are built for our community,” he said.
“We want to know what children and parents would like to see included to ensure these play spaces are fun and exciting for everyone.
“Under council’s playground renewal program we are progressively updating our play spaces to ensure everyone has access to modern playgrounds that are safe, convenient, accessible and promote healthy outdoor activity.”
The playground renewal consultation closes on Sunday 30 August.
