As part of the Playground Replacement Program, we are planning to upgrade the playground at Yarra Bank Reserve in Hawthorn. Due to its age and condition, the playground is scheduled to be replaced in 2020-2021.

Status

We are currently seeking community feedback to help inform the design of the new playground.

Have your say

Consultation is now open and ends on Sunday 15 December 2019.

About the project

Our Playgrounds Development Strategy recommends upgrading the existing Local level playground at Yarra Bank Reserve to a District level playground to better meet the community’s needs for this important and popular Yarra River precinct.  

The Yarra Bank Reserve site is considered a suitable location for a District level playground due to ease of access, proximity to car parking, proximity to existing amenities and good public surveillance. 

The project will include upgrading the play equipment, enhancing park amenities, improving accessibility, installing shade elements, nature play elements, protecting existing trees and new landscaping.

Our Playgrounds Development Strategy also recommends the nearby playground at Pridmore Park be removed and combined with the Yarra Bank Reserve playground.
