Coronavirus (COVID-19): guidance and support.

As part of our Playground Replacement Program, we're planning to renew the existing playground at Pridmore Park in Hawthorn.


Feedback to help inform the playground’s design has now closed.

We will develop a design, which will be available to view in April 2020.

About the project

Due to its age and condition, the Pridmore Park playground is scheduled to be replaced in 2020-2021.

Our original Playground Development Strategy recommended combining the playgrounds at Pridmore Park and Yarra Bank Reserve into a single ‘District’ Level playground. However, feedback received during the recent Yarra Bank Reserve playground consultation did not support this recommendation and therefore the Pridmore Park playground will be retained.  

We sought community feedback on the renewal of the Pridmore Park playground to help inform the new playground design. The project will include new play equipment and nature play opportunities, improving accessibility, renewal of park amenities and new landscaping.
