Feedback on this consultation has now closed. Thank you for taking the time to share your ideas about the draft design for the playground at Gahan Reserve.

Read a summary of the feedback we received.

We’re upgrading the playground at Gahan Reserve. In August 2018, we asked for your feedback on the current playground, and what you would like to see in the future.

From those ideas we put together a draft design for the playground. We know that Gahan Reserve is a much loved community park, so we’ve done our best to create a design that reflects your ideas and feedback.

We asked the community to have their say on the proposed design between Monday 19 August and Friday 20 September 2019.

We are now considering your comments which will help us finalise the playground design.
