The Westerfield Drive Reserve playspace was upgraded in 2022.
Surrounded by vegetation, this park offers a variety of play equipment for the community to enjoy. This includes a double swing, a trampoline and a multi-play unit with shop front and slide.
Children are also able to develop their sensory skills by interacting with musical instruments such as the 8-key Marimba and the sound bouncers or sensory trails. There are also benches to relax and a chess table where chess enthusiasts can practice their game.
The playspace also features an exciting new mural co-designed by artist Hayden Dewar and First Nations artist, Ashleigh Pugh.
This project has received funding of $400,000 through the State Government’s Pocket Parks Program, which aims to create new parks and revitalise existing local parks in built up urban areas in Metropolitan Melbourne.
Council funding from the Victorian Government through the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning’s Pocket Park Program, to create a pocket park including sensory play elements at Westerfield Drive Reserve.
An exciting draft concept plan was created, which we sought feedback on from 6 April 2021 - 4 May 2021.
We want to make this a fun and engaging place that enhances family and social recreation opportunities.
Thank you to those who provided feedback – it will help ensure that we deliver a project that is valued by the local community.
Construction commenced Monday 28 February.
