This consultation has now closed, thank you to all who participated.

At the City of Subiaco we encourage community involvement to help inform our decision making and we invited you to participate in consultation for Currie Street playground to guide the usage for this space.

The consultation to gained the community's thoughts and ideas about playgrounds in the local area, usage of Currie Street playground, age brackets of users, the type of play local children/grandchildren enjoy, the other playgrounds locals like to visit and what type of play-space was missing from the area.

The consultation was completed through a letter drop, online survey, family newsletter mail out and invitation to Subi Kids Crew.

Thank you to those who took part in this consultation. Play enables children to creatively learn about themselves, other people and the world around them. The City of Subiaco values quality opportunities for play through our best practice approach to playground maintenance, inspection and provision of play spaces that provide diverse play experiences for our community.

Outcome

The consultation process undertaken by the City showed low usage of Currie Street playground, a preference for creative and nature play and a need for additional swings.

Taking this feedback on board the City will:

  • remove the play equipment from Currie Street playground that has reached the end of its safe useful life and is due for removal;
  • add a swing set and free play section to Jersey Street playground (located 80 metres from Currie Street playground).
  • once the play equipment in Currie Street has been removed, the area will be re-turfed and the park will be maintained as public open space.

This will add greater play variety in a close-by, more frequently used play area will enrich the overall play experience in the local area by value adding, rather than duplicating play opportunities.

This process has been guided by community feedback, the City’s Playspace Strategy and available budget (including ongoing maintenance and auditing costs).

Timeline

The timeline for the upgrade of Jersey Street Playground is approximately four months, allowing for the supply and installation of the playground parts with completion anticipated to be March 2020.

Works complete

In February 2020 the old play equipment was removed from Currie Street and a new swing set added to Jersey Street playground. Currie Street park has been re-turfed and will remain as public open space.
