Central Park all abilities playground

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

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

Before a concept design is developed, we are inviting the community to have their say.

Tell us what you would like to see in the new playground.

We will consider all community's feedback and use it to inform the development of the concept design. We will present this back to the community later this year.
