Denzil Don Reserve - Playspace upgrade

Background

The playground at Denzil Don Reserve, located near the bottom of Hunter Street in Brunswick West, will be upgraded this financial year as Council continues to implement the Moreland Play Strategy 2016-20 (PDF 2Mb) (PDF 2Mb).

A draft concept plan was prepared for community consultation, featuring a range of fresh new play equipment and creation of a Nature Play area. This was made available for feedback during February and early March, with consultation closing on 7 March 2019.

The feedback received was generally very positive in support of the proposals in the draft concept plan.
