Playground upgrade on the way

The playground on Ron Giorgi III Park is getting a facelift and Council has asked residents what they would like to see there.

It is a ‘neighbourhood’ playground, which typically consists of three or four play pieces, with planting and seating. Neighbourhood playgrounds commonly cater to younger children and caregivers who live close by, as older children can jump on their bikes and, in Flaxmere’s case, head to Flaxmere Park for things like the bigger climbing frames.

Community engagement

Last year, we asked local residents, students and park users what they wanted the new playground to include. We did this via a flyer to nearby homes with details on how to submit feedback online, a meeting with students from nearby primary school Irongate, and an open day with park users.

The most requested items were:

  • Swings
  • Tall slide
  • Replacement see-saw
  • Flying fox
  • Climbing activities
  • Equipment for littlies
  • Space to ride scooters/bikes
  • Extra seating, shade and a drinking fountain

Our plans

Following community engagement, we’ve developed a plan for the new playground that features Flaxmere’s first flying fox, swings, a scooter path, see-saw and slide mound. Shade, seating and a drinking fountain are also included, which will complement the newly installed basketball court.
