Help us design YOUR playgrounds!

Wagga Wagga and the surrounding villages have more than 90 playgrounds, all of which offer a range of different play opportunities for kids.

Every time Council upgrades a playground we need the help of the kids that use them to make sure that the final design generates the most Fun Per Kid (FPK).

We use the award winning Funbobulator and a range of other methods to enable local children to help with the designs.

Awesome! Help us design playgrounds for you and your friends.

    Residents are asked to select their favourite design from the two options pictured below. The chosen playground will feature play equipment show in each individual design. Simply click on the design you like the most and vote by selecting either Option 1 or Option 2.

    Be sure to spread the word around the neighbourhood! Voting will be open until close of business Friday 18 November, 2016.

    Note:Thanks to all residents who have already cast a vote in the playground design for Estella Rise. Please note the images shown are concept ideas only. Your vote is for the individual pieces of play equipment shown in each option, i.e. see-saw, slide, swings. Additional supporting infrastructure shown in the images, such as fencing, footpaths, shade sails, are not included in the design of the playground. In accordance with the City of Wagga Wagga’s Playground Strategy 2016-2036, risk assessments of each playground, existing and new, are carried out on site. Generally fencing is not installed at local playgrounds because of the lower use and are usually located in quiet residential areas. Budgets for local playgrounds are also usually small and do not make installing fences possible. Once all the votes have been counted and the final design for the Estella Rise playground has been determined all equipment will be made and installed to Australian safety standards and bark softfall will be incorporated in the design. We apologise for any confusion and ask residents who would like to discuss this further to contact Works and Playground Officer John Conlan on 1300 292 442.

    The City of Wagga Wagga will partner with national charity Touched By Olivia Foundation to deliver the city’s first inclusive playspace.

    The Bolton Park playground will be built and designed for children of all ages and abilities to play side by side.

    The Touched By Olivia Foundation creates unique, special places that provide social inclusion for all children and their families.

    Playspaces created in partnership with the Foundation are branded as Livvi’s Place playgrounds. These playgrounds are in memory of Olivia Perkins, the daughter of Sydney parents John and Justine Perkins, who died of a rare disease when she was eight months old.

    Wagga Wagga mother Leila Bright, whose eldest daughter was born with a disability, helped unite Council and the Foundation.

    “The need for an all abilities playground in the city was identified and Council was looking to deliver an all abilities playground this year in accordance with the Wagga Wagga Playground Strategy 2016-2036,” Strategic Asset Planner (Parks and Recreation) Peter Cook said.

    “The Touched By Olivia Foundation have worked in partnership to deliver 20 Livvi’s Place inclusive playspaces across the country. The Foundation has the knowledge and expertise to create special places where all children can socialise and enjoy the wonders of play.

    “Council also extends thanks to Ms Bright, for her enthusiasm and ambition has helped bring the two parties together to deliver a fantastic facility for the city.”

    On Monday Council resolved to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Touched By Olivia Foundation for the joint delivery of the playspace. The MOU was officially signed by both parties this week.

    Wagga’s Livvi’s Place inclusive playspace will replace the existing playground at Bolton Park and will be relocated adjacent to the Bolton Park Skate Park.

    Community and stakeholder contributions helped decide the final design of the play space, which will include characteristics to encourage equal access and play, security and safety and facilities for young and older children and family get-togethers.

    The City of Wagga Wagga has committed $100,000 towards the project. Additional grant funding of $10,000 from Northcott and $75,000 from the NSW Government Office of Sport and Recreation have also been contributed.

    Under the MOU the Touched by Olivia Foundation will contribute, through community fundraising, grants and services, a minimum $100,000 towards the project. Extra funding above $100,000 will help provide additional resources for the playground.

    Construction and completion of the playspace will be carried out during 2017.
