Construction has now commenced on the eagerly anticipated new playspace at Benjafield Park!
The new and improved Benjafield Park will be a unique, modern playspace which truly reflects the vision of the local community.
Council staff worked with the Glenorchy community to ensure their voices were heard during the initial design process, with consultation beginning in February to workshop initial requests and wishes for the project.
453 people had their say, voting on the final design choice from two options:
- Space Theme
- Jungle Theme
The winner, with 57% of the vote, was the SPACE THEME! 🎉
The spaceship/rocket design has now been refined to incorporate further feedback/suggestions from the community.
Planned works will involve the realignment of underground power as well as temporary fencing, meaning that the playground and carpark will be unavailable during the works, and power for BBQs and lighting will, at times, be impacted. Council will update the community the community updated throughout the duration of the project.
Council apologises for any inconvenience caused while we work to create this exciting new playspace. We can’t wait to share it with you all! Follow the prompts below to learn more and view the concept design!
