We have developed a draft design incorporating the feedback given in Stage 1 of the Bluegum Drive Playspace, Badger Creek upgrade.

What you told us;

  • Bluegum Reserve Playspace is valued by the local community.
  • The site is commonly used by all ages for playing, walking and health and fitness.
  • The playspace currently does not meet your needs and requires a diverse range of equipment to suit and entertain all ages.
  • It is a safe area, away from traffic, with open grassed spaces.
  • More seating and park furniture throughout the park is needed.
  • A playspace design with natural structures, resources and nature play areas would be highly valued by the community.
  • The site is highly utilised to access the creek, you would like a formal path connecting down to the river.
  • Accessible play equipment would be highly valued at this site.
  • Landscape and garden beds are important to creating a welcome and inviting playspace.
  • Swings and slides in playspaces were your most requested playspace equipment.

Please provide your feedback below

Council uses the word playspace, instead of playground because it covers more than the equipment. It reflects the wide range of users, age groups and experiences of the community in the space.

This survey is looking for your feedback on how to improve Bluegum Drive playspace for the future. If you need to report damaged or missing playspace equipment or any other playspace issues/concerns about other playspaces in Yarra Ranges, please Report an issue with a playspace Yarra Ranges Council.

The existing playspace will be renewed in line with the recommendations within the Playspace Plan 2019-2029. As this is a local-level playspace, large infrastructure such as shelters, toilets and barbeques will not be provided.

After this second stage of consultation the project will move to construction stage. Works are expected to be completed at the playspace by June 2024.
