Stage 2 Playspace Update
Part of the development along the foreshore at Port MacDonnell will deliver a new playspace with hero pieces such as a giant boat and six meter tower with a slide and climbing wall, natural water play, an in-ground trampoline, as well as swings and other play elements. A hybrid approach between nature and adventure play is the design principle the team at Oxigen have used to inspire the development.
Mayor Sage explained that community consultation in late 2019 highlighted a need for more seating and shelters along the foreshore, so Council decided to expand the scope of the project to include a new shelter and seating on Sea Parade. Furthermore, to ensure the playground is delivered to a high quality standard that the community expect, additional resources to the value of $160,000 from Council’s Open Space Contribution fund have been allocated to this project taking the project budget to $865,000.
For further information about Councils Open Space Contributions Fund or the budget process for this project, please see the Land Division Open Space Policy tab to the right or contact Council for more information.
The current playground on the foreshore will remain in place until after Christmas with works on this area and Standish Street starting late January and to be complete by end of March. This will still give the community and visitors a playground to use over the summer months.
The Waterfront Stage 2 is expected to start late October 2020 and be completed by March 2020.
