Mansfield Botanic Park Playground Renewal


Mansfield Shire Council is seeking community feedback on the Draft Concept Design for a new play space at the Mansfield Botanic Park.


Mansfield Shire Council is working to renew the play space at the Mansfield Botanic Park.

Due to recently identified safety risks, all treated pine play equipment has been removed and community engagement has commenced to inform the development of a new regionally significant playground including a nature play area.

Over the coming months Council will develop fully scoped designs for the space with the intention of commencing construction and implementing a new playground by December 2021.
