Have your say on new playgrounds for PB Ronald Reserve and Lakeside Park

Published: 22 June 2017

Local residents are invited to have their say on new playground designs for PB Ronald Reserve and Lakeside Park in Pakenham.

You can give your feedback by filling out an online survey or by coming to one of the community workshops being held in July. 

The current playgrounds will be replaced with new all-ages play spaces, which will be ready for use by the end of 2017.

Council’s Park Development Coordinator, Belinda Powell said Council would like to hear from those who use the playgrounds about the elements they would like to see included.

“We would like members of the local community to contribute their ideas about the design and equipment included in the playgrounds to ensure it is a space that meets local needs,” Ms Powell said.

“We will be holding Play Space Design Days where residents can come along and contribute their ideas and work with us to create their own play space model. We are keen to hear from residents of all ages.”

The online survey is on Council’s website at www.cardinia.vic.gov.au/haveyoursay. Residents can also request a hardcopy of the survey by calling 5945 4225. The survey closes at 5pm, Sunday 16 July 2017 for the PB Ronald Reserve survey and 5pm, Sunday 23 July for the Lakeside Park survey.

Residents can email their concept plans, along with clear explanations of the elements included, to mail@cardinia.vic.gov.au before 5pm, Sunday 16 July for PB Ronald Reserve and Sunday 23 July for Lakeside Park.

The PB Ronald Reserve Play Space Design Day will be held on Tuesday 4 July, from 12.00pm to 5pm at the Pakenham Library.

This Growth Corridor District Playgrounds project is part of a five-year $55 million project to improve community facilities across the Shire. Funding has also been received from the Victorian Government’s Growing Suburbs Fund.
