Ready Shelley Go! - Project Update

The new Shelley Beach Park playground design, informed directly by community, features an inclusive layout, carefully crafted to meet the diverse needs of children across a wide range of ages.

This is the City’s first district and multi-generational playground where it will feature three distinct play areas intended for children of varying ages, ranging from newborn to 12-year-old. The playground design has an emphasis on active play and will use materials that will complement the surrounding area and riverfront.


The new playground is one of 12 to be upgraded as part of the City’s commitment to invest $44 million into local playgrounds, community facilities, community safety, environment, and conservation, in its recently adopted Better Budget 2023-2024. Construction of the Shelley Beach Park playground in anticipated to commence in February 2024.

Backstory

The City kick-started the delivery of the playground of the Shelley Beach Park Masterplan by hosting the Ready Shelley Go meet and greet session at Shelley Beach Park on the 3 December 2022. The event aimed to gather feedback and suggestions from the local community about the park's future play space redevelopment.


The session attracted nearly 300 participants and featured interactive activities such as ‘Dotmocracy Voting’, written surveys, childrens' art activities, and free ice cream for the participants. The local community shared their thoughts and ideas about the play space with the project team and helped create a shared vision for the project.


The atmosphere was lively and inclusive, with a wide range of ages and backgrounds represented. Many participants expressed their appreciation for the opportunity to have their voices heard and felt that their input was valued.


Overall, the engagement session was a clear success, providing valuable insights and feedback for the project team to consider as the City moves forward with the plans for the area. The community's involvement and enthusiasm bode well for the future of Shelley Beach Park and its continued development as a hub for recreation and relaxation for residents and visitors alike.

What are the next steps?

The team is actively collaborating with local artists and fabricators to finalise the design details for the feature play equipment at the various play areas. We will provide progress updates as we make further advancements once details are finalised.
