Background

In 2021, as part of Morelands Play Strategy, Council will be renewing the playground and undertaking improvements at Dunstan Reserve on Peacock Street in Brunswick West.

Earlier this year we asked the community to tell us what they would like to see in their upgraded playground at Dunstan Reserve. 154 individual requests/suggestions were put forward from the community over the 2-3 week consultation period.

The following 15 Categories had the highest number of requests. They are listed here from most requested to least:

  • Climbing/Catering for older/teenage kids
  • More functional BBQ and Shelter area
  • Toilets
  • Basket Swing
  • Fitness equipment (with half of these submissions asking specifically for Calisthenics equipment)
  • Basketball Court Upgrade
  • More Seating and picnic tables
  • Nature Play
  • Water Play
  • Informal seating (rocks/logs etc.)
  • Climbing ropes / nets / monkey bars
  • Fenced Playground
  • More trees and shade
  • Enclosed Dog Area
  • Native planting

The above items have been carefully taken into account in the creation of these draft concepts for the playground upgrade and fitness circuit.

We would love to hear from you! Please refer to the 'Document Library' on this page for details. Residents and the wider community are invited to submit feedback on the proposals shown in these concept plans.

Your feedback will be considered before finalising the design for construction.
