Warringa Park Playground Upgrading Proposal

Consultation has concluded

Submissions close 5pm, 14 December 2018

Council is proposing to upgrade the playground in Warringa Park and we need your feedback on our plans.

Background

The existing playground is approximately 18 years old and was carefully designed to blend in with the surrounding landscape and capitalise on the shade from existing embankment trees. The playground has been extremely popular and well-used, and is now a little tired. Council does not intend to drastically change the size or character of this play-space, but is keen to maximise play-value and improve accessibility. Funding was allocated in the North Sydney Delivery Program and the work is scheduled for completion in the current financial year.

Warringa Park has a wonderful tree canopy with many new trees specifically planted around the edge of the playground to increase natural shade. This has provided a beautiful setting for a playground. The entire park is fenced, providing excellent opportunities for free-play to evolve from the formal playspace, encouraging running, ball games and other active play that is so beneficial to childhood health, development and well-being. It is a fabulous setting for play.

What’s proposed?

To revamp the existing playground in Warringa Park, incorporating an exciting range of new equipment for users of diverse ages and abilities.

The proposed upgrade will:

  • Complement the existing leafy character of the Park and blend into the landform

  • Provide a variety of play equipment offering inclusive play opportunities for a diverse range of ages and abilities

  • Provide maximum play value by offering many different types of activities (spinning, swinging, sliding, bouncing, climbing etc), and providing equipment that can accommodate several children simultaneously.

  • Have improved accessibility for strollers, wheelchairs, mobility aids and the like

  • Provide a pleasant environment for parents and carers with an adequate amount of seating positioned to facilitate easy supervision

  • Incorporate the surrounding canopy trees, gardens and landscaping as integral components of the design
