Community feedback on our local playspace projects is closing soon. The following playspaces are scheduled to be replaced in 2024 and council would like to know which design you prefer, there are two options for each site.:

  • McKenzie Views Park, Cowes
  • Outrigger Reserve, Inverloch
  • Woolamai Park in Cape Woolamai

Designs for the new playspace and fitness area in Anderson Street Reserve in San Remo are on the way and will open to the community before the end of the year.

July's announcement of replacing three playspaces and adding one prompted community input, reflected in unique draft designs for each location

Community-inspired park designs

Bass Coast Mayor, Cr Clare Le Serve said it was fantastic to have so much community engagement and feedback incorporated into these draft designs. "We've compiled all the feedback and drawings we received to come up with draft designs - each unique to its location. Each location has two options which is exciting. In Inverloch we heard that our community wanted lots of climbing elements, natural colours and some boat themes which is what you'll see in the design options for Outrigger Reserve."

"For McKenzie Views Park in Cowes the ideas were for logs to balance on and also incorporating more trees into the design - so again the designs reflect this: 'Cape Woolamai has a ninja course and nature area for smaller children.' Local level playspaces are the smallest of all our parks and they're designed to cater for the community who live within walking distance of the park so unfortunately it wasn't possible to accommodate every idea, but we've done our best to include as much of community feedback as possible," Cr Le Serve explained.

You can check out the designs and provide your feedback about which design you prefer at Bass Coast Shire Council website via 'What makes a great playspace?'. Consultation closes on Sunday, 3 December.
