Background

Belgrave Street Reserve is located in a beautiful and relaxed neighbourhood. The Reserve has a 'pocket playground', with a basic range of play experiences that caters to residents within a five minute walk from their home.

Plans are underway to upgrade the play space and park in Belgrave Street Reserve. We listened to your feedback across two rounds of community consultation to refine the concept design and construction is due to start on 26 September 2022 and is expected to take six weeks to complete, weather permitting.

The upgrade will include:

  • Improving the turf and increasing the size of the lawn
  • Providing nature play which incorporates natural materials
  • Increasing the area of the park by moving the fence further towards the street edge and increasing planting in the street verge
  • Providing imaginative play elements
  • Improving the current play experience by installing new equipment
  • New bin
  • Improving path entries
  • Increasing planting
  • Removing the concrete slab next to the park and replacing it with planting (this will not impact the functionality of the driveway)

Consultation

We collected feedback across two rounds of community consultation. Read the consultation report.
