Community Feedback Sought on Design for Botanic Park Playground

Friday, 28 February, 2020 - 12:15

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

Mansfield Shire Mayor, Cr Marg Attley OAM acknowledged the community’s input to date.

“We spoke to hundreds of community members of all ages at the Bush Market in November and received a great response from an initial community survey,” Cr Attley said.

“It’s clear the community is very excited about this project, with an expressed desire for a play space that was accessible to a variety of ages and abilities, but also sympathetic to the site and surrounding area. We are really delighted so many people have been involved already and there are more opportunities to do so. This level of involvement speaks of the strong community spirit and adds to our aim of developing an inclusive, dynamic and prosperous place,” she said.

“Playgrounds are an important hub for the community, they are places that bring people together to connect, learn and enjoy.  In response to the first phase of engagement and with the support of the Project Reference Group, we are pleased to present this concept design to the broader community for comment,” said Cr Attley.

Community members are encouraged to view the design and provide feedback on the design through Council’s website at The Have Your Say survey will remain open until Friday 13 March.

Other opportunities to Have Your Say include:

  • A pop-up display and listening post at Mansfield Producers’ Twilight Market at the Botanic Park on Friday, 6 March from 5pm.
  • A public drop-in community engagement session with Council staff and the project's landscape architect at the Mansfield Library on Thursday, 12 March between 12pm and 2pm.
  • View the design and complete a survey in person at the Mansfield Library or Council Offices until the Friday, 13 March.
