    Plans for an upgrade to the playground at Govett Street Reserve in Broadford are underway and Mitchell Shire Council wants your input.

    The $82,000 project will be funded by Mitchell Shire Council, with the design to make use of existing trees and add a range of accessible playground elements targeting a range of ages and abilities.

    Possible features earmarked for the playground include:

    • Play panels such as Tic Tac Toe, a music panel, shop counter and driving panel
    • A nature trail with monkey bars, balancing logs and steppers
    • Swings with a toddler seat and sling seat
    • A basket swing, slide and telescope

    Council will hold a drop-in session at the reserve on Wednesday 15 March from 3.45pm to 4.15pm, where people can give their feedback on the playground’s proposed features.

    Flyers with information on the project will be dropped in the letterboxes of nearby residents, while people can also email and call the Council with their thoughts.

    Works on the playground are expected to begin in May and be finished by mid-2017.

    Feedback will be accepted until Monday 20 March.
