Victoria Recreation Ground playground: updated plans

about 1 year ago

We asked

We shared draft plans for the revamp of Victoria Recreation Ground playground and asked for your views.

You said

The feedback on the plans was positive, with feedback including:

  • wanting more social and imaginative play equipment for young children

  • asking for cradle seat swings in the toddler area

  • asking that the proposed trampoline is made bigger

  • not being in favour of the maze in the playground

We did

Based on your feedback, we changed the plans for Victoria Recreation Ground playground. The changes are:

Play equipment for young children
A number of people asked for more imaginative play equipment for young children. We have changed the plans to include a toddler train, playhouse and cradle seat swings in the toddler area.

Trampoline
Based on feedback, we have changed the plans to include a larger 2m x 2m trampoline.

More natural-looking designA number of people asked for more natural looking surfacing, so this has been toned down to a more natural colour which is more in keeping with the local area.

What was removed?
Of those who responded to the survey, a number of people were not supportive of the maze and the timber edging around the sandpit, so these have both been removed from the design.

Next steps

The works on site are due to start in mid September and complete in early October, taking around 4 weeks.
