Consultation has concluded, thank you for your time.

Project Update

Council would like to provide you with a further update on the Willowbank Park playground renewal project within Kirwan.

Council invited the community to provide feedback in relation to a playground option proposed for the park that will improve the overall user experience within the open space. The project received 430 visitors to the page with 40 responses that has provided Council guidance in shaping this project and more importantly future open space parks within our region.

An overview of the feedback informed Council of the following:

  • Overall considerable support for the project;
  • Support for investment in the Kirwan area;
  • Concerns raised regarding the design and lack of lighting within the park; and
  • 97% community support towards the Concept 1 playground.

Council as a result of the community consultation will be proceeding with the installation of the new playground within Willowbank Park:
