Share your ideas on Victory Park play space

Victory Park playspace

Have a say on the features you would like to see at a new play space in Victory Park, Castlemaine.

Monday 11 September 2017

Mount Alexander Shire Council is seeking community input into the design of a new play space for Victory Park in Castlemaine through an online survey.

“We are looking to design a play space that is innovative and creative, and reflects the vibrant energy of our shire,” said Ben Grounds, Manager Community Places and Spaces, Mount Alexander Shire Council.

The design will fulfil Council’s aspirations for play spaces as exciting and inspirational places for the community to come together where children are free to explore, create and imagine.

The current playground at Victory Park was identified for upgrade from a local to a district level play space in Council’s Let’s Play 2014-2024 Investing in Play Strategy.

A district level play space will cater for a greater range of ages and abilities, and will play a role in providing for tourism and other economic development opportunities.

“We’re looking for families in the community to get involved and help inform the designs through an initial survey,” said Mr Grounds.

“There will be many opportunities to have a say. We are hoping to find out more about the features that people like and how the space could be improved through this survey.

“We’d like to hear how the play space currently works for children, what could make it better, and any play features that the community would like to see at Victory Park that aren’t available at other play space in the shire," he said.

The play space will seek to complement the experiences offered at other playgrounds around the shire such as nature play at Taradale and the goldfields heritage experience at Maldon.

Complete the survey online at the Have Your Say section of Council’s website. Surveys are also available at the Civic Centre, Castlemaine Library and Castlemaine Visitor Information Centre in Mostyn Street.

Submissions must be received by 5.00pm on Monday 25 September.

Survey results will be used to brief the designer. More detailed consultation is planned for later in the year.
