    This playground has been a popular and well used facility by the local community, sportsground users and visitors for the past 17 years. We would like to rejuvenate the existing play spaces including installing new play equipment and softfall.

    Other landscape improvements and renewal works will be undertaken to the main entry path and feature timber walling, entry gates / front fence, the paved courtyard space (ie: seating, dance stage and musical play elements), existing wharf nature play items, garden beds and park furniture.

    The playground is situated on the northern side of the Passmore Reserve and is centrally located within District Park, a large regional sporting and recreational open space. The site is adjacent the Manly Creek foreshore, existing playing fields, bbq/picnic facilities and amenities, and is connected to neighbouring residential areas by a shared path network.

    The playground has a natural setting and is well shaded by a number of large native trees. An existing shade structure over the senior play area is in poor condition and requires removal and possible replacement (dependent on design and layout of new equipment). The junior play area has shade sails that will be renewed.

    Council’s aim is to provide a facility and equipment that offers increased social, recreation and play opportunities and maximises participation by the whole community and responds to the park’s natural setting.

    Council is planning to seek feedback from the community on four playground equipment design options to assist staff evaluate quotations and select the preferred design.
