Thornton Reserve Playground

We're upgrading Thornton Reserve Playground to make it a more accessible, safe and enjoyable space. Thornton Reserve has a unique hillside setting which presents an exciting play opportunity.

Before we draw up a plan for the upgrade, we want to know what you'd like to see in the space. Scroll down to provide your feedback by 11.59pm, Monday 11 December 2024.

Community feedback will then be reviewed and used to develop a draft concept plan for the upgrade in early 2024. We will share the draft concept design with you to make sure we've got it right. The concept plan will then be finalised and construction will take place in the 2024-2025 financial year.
