Central Park playground

We are planning to upgrade the playground in Central Park in Malvern East.

The new playground will be an inclusive, accessible play space for children, youth and adults of all abilities.

To ensure the design meets the expectations and needs of the community, we will complete two rounds of community engagement:

Round 1 - gather ideas from the community that will inform the playground design.
Round 2 - share the draft design and seek feedback. Have we got it right? Have we missed anything?

Once all feedback has been considered and, where appropriate, incorporated the draft will be presented to Council for adoption - ahead of construction.
