Gibson Street Reserve Playground Upgrade

With the valuable feedback received from the community consultation in December 2016 - January 2017, Council has updated the concept plan for Gibson Street Reserve. Works commenced in late May 2018 and are expected to conclude in August 2018 (weather permitting)..

Thomas Hogan Reserve Upgrade

From September - November 2017, we collected feedback from the community on the draft concept design of Thomas Hogan Reserve's central clearing and community hall landscape. With the valuable feedback received through face to face meetings, onsite design walk throughs and the responses from our survey on haveyoursaywaverley.com from the community, we have updated concept design, which can be viewed here.

This design will be further developed for construction with additional specialist advice on the details  of the design. Council has also engaged a qualified professional to develop an Ecological Restoration Action Plan for Thomas Hogan Reserve. You can view the Draft Ecological Restoration Action Plan and have your say here.

Marks Park Playground Upgrade

From March - April 2018, we collected feedback from the community on the future upgrade of Marks Park Playground. The upgrade aims to improve the safety and play experience of the existing play space, bring all the play equipment up to date with the latest Australian Standards for safety, as well as improve the play experience of the existing play space as identified in Waverley Council's Play Space Strategy (PSS).

The feedback we received indicates the proposed draft design met the communities expectations and requirements. Council will continue to further develop the design for construction and are working on finalising a construction program to minimise disruptions to events and the community.
