Thanks to all those who have been involved in discussions about changes to the play space at Coogoorah Park.
These are the final designs:
With these new designs confirmed, Council is now seeking feedback on colours and materials to incorporate into the new nautical themed play space.
Have your say
Feedback is welcome by August 29.
About the new designs
The new design includes a large timber ship in the main play space as the hero play element, with over 30 play elements around, inside, and underneath the ship. There is also a junior play space.
This ship has been designed to include other elements requested by the community, including climbing ropes, rock climbing panels, scramble and funnel nets, as well as pirate themed features like treasure hunts, binoculars, and slides.
The design also allows for access points for all ages and abilities to make the space more inclusive.
Coogoorah Park is a significant play space in Anglesea.
In December 2020 and January 2021 we worked with local community members to discuss a new era for Coogoorah Park, given the current play space has come to the end of its natural life due to the age of the equipment and safety concerns.
The majority of community members involved in the engagement process opted to keep the nautical theme, and to maintain the natural timber feel in the space.
