What do you think of the designs for the new Grassy Head playground?

Council has been exploring options to replace the existing swing set at Grassy Head which has reached the end of its life.

During site inspections, it became clear that the existing site has shortcomings, including exposed roots and heavily sloped ground. For these reasons, a new site is proposed, allowing more trees to be maintained and achieving a larger playground footprint.

In addition to the new playground, an electric barbecue and table will be installed.

Accessibility is a focus for this project. We have included accessible elements in the playground and surrounding furnishings to promote inclusion in the community. New pathways will connect the playground to car parking locations and new disability-compliant tables.

The project is in Council's Delivery Program and has received $200,000 in grant funding.

Mature tree planting will be considered once the playground equipment is in place to address any shade issues. Council is also looking at how to provide a safer crossing to the nearby toilet block.

What's next?

After receiving mixed feedback from the community about this upgrade we are now formally seeking views on this project.
