Details

Council is very excited with the new opportunities for play that will be created in the Playspace area at Broadview Oval along the northern boundary of the site. The Playspace will be undergoing an upgrade consisting of new basket swing, skateboard cable slider, trampolines (incl all access), all access rotator, mound slide, sand factory and a climbing structure.

The space will be supplemented by a grassed area, tree and vegetation plantings, shelter, picnic settings, BBQ and interactive art pieces/sculptures.

The dog park will also be receiving an upgrade that will include new grassed area consisting of cover lawn a new turf system that allows natural grass to grow through a honeycomb cell structure with synthetic turf attached, which creates a hybrid lawn that can withstand incredibly high traffic area such as a dog park, and still look green all year round.

New garden beds along the western boundary will also provide more greenery to this space and art work on the existing pipes will add a pop of colour visible to dogs as well as our community.

In addition, new lighting will be installed to both the playspace and dog park areas to light up these areas in the evening.
