Background

Primarily used for cricket and rugby, there is a small fenced playground located in the South west corner of the reserve. The playground and fencing are in poor condition and have been identified as in need of replacement.

Council’s Playground Strategy states that the playground is of a local scale and should meet the needs of the immediate local community. The playground is primarily designed to cater for younger children.

Next Steps

Council will review the responses and develop a concept design that will incorporate community feedback. It is anticipated that construction of the playground and landscape will occur in early 2014.

  • Tregenza Oval Playground Update

    over 3 years ago

    The results from the Tregenza Oval Playground Upgrade Community Survey that closed in August 2013 are listed below.  

    Out of the 55 valid responses, 98% were in favour of the upgrade and only 1 respondent not in favour.

    The most popular play features were:

    • Swinging (84%);
    • Sliding (82%); and
    • Climbing (75%).

    The most popular landscape features & amenities were:

    • Seating (84%); and
    • Shade (75%).

    70% of respondents made additional comments, with a variety of suggestions being made, covering a range of topics. Popular trends included lighting for the oval, easier access to the playground and drink/water fountains.

    A concept design has been developed in response to the community feedback. The new playground will see the popular existing swing and slide replaced with up to date versions of the equipment. Mounds with artificial grass will add climbing and sensory experiences for younger children. Further interactive elements such as sound tubes and puzzle panels will ensure as many play experiences as possible are fit into the small space. In terms of additional amenities, upgraded fencing, rubber surfacing and ramp access on two sides will ensure a safe experience for carers with young children.

    Works are currently underway with a target completion date of mid June 2014. For more information, contact Chris Linnell on 8366 4200 or clinnell@burnside.sa.gov.au.
