Have your say on Cardinia Shire’s playground and park renewals

Published: 31 July 2023

Cardinia Shire community members are invited to have their say on the renewal of the following playspaces and parks:

  • Village Green, Beaconsfield 
  • Waterford Rise Park, Pakenham 
  • Jim Parkes Reserve, Beaconsfield  

Feedback is open now until Sunday 20 August.  

Cardinia Shire Council will use community input on the playground upgrades planned for Village Green and Waterford Rise Park to inform the initial concept designs. These playspace designs will be presented to the community for additional feedback before they are finalised later this year. 

Community input on Jim Parkes Reserve will inform the final design of the park. This follows initial community consultation that took place to implement the Beaconsfield Structure Plan. 

Cardinia Shire Council Mayor, Councillor Tammy Radford, encourages community members to give their feedback.  

“Input from people who use these playgrounds and parks is incredibly valuable. Your ideas will help shape the design of the renewed spaces. We want to hear about how you use these spaces, what you do or don’t like about them, and what you’d like to see as part of the renewals,” said Mayor Radford.  

“We know our community values Cardinia Shire’s open spaces and parks. The renewal of these neighbourhood play spaces supports the wellbeing of our community, making our shire an even better place to live, work and play,” said Mayor Radford. 

Community members can provide input and feedback in several ways:  

Have Your Say online: 

  • In person at the Civic Centre: 20 Siding Avenue, Officer 
  • By email: (subject: Playspace Renewals) 
  • By post: PO Box 7, Pakenham VIC 3810 
  • Jim Parkes Reserve Drop-In Session: Tuesday 8 August, 3:30-5pm at Jim Parkes Reserve (4-6 Souter Street, Beaconsfield)
