We have engaged a contractor to deliver the playground renewal at Anana Reserve, with works scheduled to commence on Wednesday 8 March 2023.
The main playground works are likely to take four weeks to complete (depending on weather). Associated works may follow. We will work closely with the contractor to ensure measures are in place to minimise any potential impacts during the works.
The playground area will be enclosed by a construction fence during works. To ensure a safe environment and minimal disruption, we request that the public refrain from entering this area until works are complete.
Anana Reserve Playground is located close to Elanora Heights Public School and local shops.
The play equipment in this popular playground requires upgrading to meet the needs of the community with a focus on providing play for toddler and primary school-aged children.
We called for concept designs from a number of contractors to undertake the design and construction, and their proposals are pictured below.
We exhibited three proposals and asked you to indicate your preferred option.
The proposals were exhibited between Friday 4 November and Sunday 4 December, and we received 130 comments. Feedback indicated a high level of support for renewing the playground.
Proposal 2 received the most support, with the remaining preferences split evenly across proposals 1 and 3. In light of this, we will proceed with the playground renewal based on Proposal 2 with minor modifications.
Many respondents also asked that the fire truck be retained - we will work with the supplier to incorporate a small fire engine play piece in the final design.
A path connection and upgraded drinking fountain will also be added to the project.
Thank you to all who provided feedback on the proposals. You can view more detail on the feedback and outcomes in our Community Engagement Report.
