About the space

Hakea Street Reserve is a small reserve in Watsonia North. It has an existing playground, half court, open grass space and some shade trees.

This playground is very popular with local families and is now scheduled for renewal. We are excited to continue to provide a high quality playground experience at Hakea Street Reserve for many years to come, and we are seeking your feedback on the proposal.

Improving your playground

We will replace the existing playground with new and improved equipment to meet the needs of the local community. The new equipment will have timber elements and the playground will be softened with sections of nature play elements including logs and a rock gathering space that will connect the play space with the natural environment.

This new playground will offer the following elements:

  • A swing set with a strap seat, a toddler seat
  • A basket swing
  • Multiplay unit with two slides, a bridge, a platform with a roof and climbing elements, talking tubes, shop counter
  • A natural outdoor gathering space with log steppers and seating
  • New line marking to the basketball court including four square marking

  • View the concept designs and let us know what you think!
