Playground proposal

The City of Greater Dandenong is planning to replace the old playground with a new local playground.

The playground in Markham Reserve will be designed to encourage active, challenging, imaginative and social play for both younger and older children.

Council is seeking local residents feedback on the equipment ideas (see images) or other suggestions you may have. Any thoughts or suggestions may help inform the direction of the concept design and selection of the playground equipment.

The upgrade to the playground area includes:

  • A new local playground

  • Rubber surfaced access paths to the swings and other equipment to improve all ability access

  • A picnic table, park seating and bike hoop

  • Footpath tree planting
