Bryant Family Reserve project, Oak Park

Project overview

Council is upgrading the park and playspace at Bryant Family Reserve, situated at the end Vincent Street, Oak Park, this financial year 2017-18.

The playspace upgrade proposes a range of park improvements, including:

  • the partial refurbishment of existing play equipment and addition of a new senior swing.
  • creation of a new nature play area with water play as well as rocks and logs for sitting and balancing on - the nature play area utilises the site slopes and existing trees to create a range of new play experiences.
  • increase in size of the existing Basketball Half Court and installing a new tower with back board, as well as reconstructing the hit-up wall.
  • new furniture and additional garden beds and trees will be planted to increase shade and habitat value, and
  • an improved path network for better access and circulation around the playspace and adjoining area is also included.

Timeline

The park and playspace works began in February 2018. We anticipated that works would be complete in April 2018, however due to unforeseen delays in supply of play equipment, the project will now be complete by June 2018.
