Tregenza Oval Playground Update

02 Jun 2014

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.
