Consultation has concluded

At the City of Subiaco we encourage community involvement to help inform our decision making.

Stage two consultation has now closed for the replacement of the Market Square playground equipment. Three successfully shortlisted playground concepts were available to be reviewed and ranked by the community (see the document library to the right, and the information below). Shortlisting was completed by City of Subiaco officers with consideration to the community feedback received in August/September 2018.

During stage one of the community engagement, it was requested that the city take action in regards to the old skate park area. The city has decided to install the new playground in the location of the old skate park. This will revitalise the area and allow for sun protection through the use of natural shade provided from existing trees.

  • Shade sails
  • Several large climbing frames
  • Large spiral slide
  • Junior play slide

The primary elements are complemented by a large cyclone swing and several sensory panels. This playground will use a mixture of soft falls including sand and rubber.

How can I be involved?

This survey closed on Monday 18 February 2019 at 4pm.

In the interest of public safety and to uphold the amenity of the park, the old playground, which was fire damaged, has now been removed and turf has been laid in the area.

What's next?

Community engagement and planning is complete, and the nature play themed playground was selected for installation. Work on the removal of the old skate park area and installation of the playground is expected to start in mid-April 2019, and take approximately one month.
