Council seeks input on refreshing Westmeadow park

April 25, 2016 by  

Erinbank Crescent Reserve is to receive a facelift and residents of Westmeadow and Broadmeadows, Victoria are getting a chance to have an input into the overall design.

Hume Mayor Helen Patsikatheodorou urged locals to take up the offer and have a voice in what fresh features could be added to enhance and rejuvenate the park.

She said Council is looking at the introduction of a brand new play space at the reserve, with all equipment installed at one location, rather than scattered throughout the park.

The Mayor invited input from children as to what sorts of equipment could be included, such as climbing objects, monkey bars, see saws, swings, tunnels, and bridges.

She said the Erinbank Crescent Reserve, which has been the feature of family photographs and postcard printing for many years, is popular with all ages, which is why Council is inviting suggestions on options to enhance the green space.

She said the options could include soccer goals, a path and a garden.

A survey has been put together by Hume Council to assist adults and children in submitting their ideas.

The Mayor said the survey was simple and gave younger respondents a chance to draw the features they were keen to see included in the design. It also offered a few suggestions, such as a hopscotch course and more shelter.

She said the equipment is due to be replaced in 2017 followed by the park’s rejuvenation project.
