Project background

Glenorchy City Council encourages you to have your say on two exciting regional playspaces being designed and built at the Montrose Bay Foreshore Community Park and Giblins Reserve in Goodwood.

The new playspaces will include play equipment catering to all ages, some play elements for all abilities, an art component, and new landscaping.  There is also the potential for additional community facilities such as a fenced off-leash dog exercise area, a mindfulness labyrinth feature, and other community facilities such as seating and picnic areas. The carpark, shared pathway and toilets at Giblins Reserve will also be upgraded.

Council would love to hear about your ideas for these areas. We want to find out what is important and unique about each site and capture themes and ideas that will help the designers ensure the playspaces meet community needs and expectations, and make them great places for you and family and friends to visit.

The project is jointly funded by the Australian Government's Community Development Grant program and Glenorchy City Council.
