Residents of the Whroovale estate north of Nagambie are very keen to have children’s outdoor equipment in the open space area bordered by Kheminda Crescent and Jean Claude Avenue.
Since engaging with residents, Strathbogie Council has a greater direction of what the community want in this open space beyond the existing path and several advanced trees.
Strathbogie Shire Mayor Cr Laura Binks thanked the Whroovale estate residents for their quick responses to the survey.
“Our Share Strathbogie site lit up when we put out the QR code directing people to our interactive engagement hub to receive their suggestions,” Cr Binks said.
“Overwhelmingly, most of the 112 people who responded to the survey suggested they wanted a fun area with children’s play equipment as well as some green space and a small percentage wanted some fitness equipment.
“The plan now is to install an irrigation system through the site and at the same time we will be going to tender for a company to design and construct the play structures,” Cr Binks said.
The play equipment will be directed towards the three to eight year age group, and it is expected that the equipment will be installed by the end of the year.
Also included in the plan will be shade sails and some park benches and picnic tables.
