  • Scooter & Bicycle Skills and Play – to allow children to explore and improve a mix of skills including bumps, slopes, varied surfaces and skate elements;
  • Outdoor Fitness Zonewill include a range of static outdoor strength and conditioning equipment;
  • Nature Play Area – to be constructed around the turtle sculpture and include new garden beds and stepping stones;
  • Kick Around  Grass Area – a flat area of irrigated lawn for informal ball sports;
  • Junior and Toddler Play Areas – new age-appropriate play areas for smaller children;
  • Enhanced Plantings and Landscaping – extension of plantings, seating and pathways.
  • Outdoor Basketball Area

A three-stage construction program is included in the master plan.
