Works to remove the playground and construct the cricket nets will begin in September with a new playground to be installed soon after.
The new playground includes new equipment and connecting paths.
The playground will include a double wave slide, climbing equipment, stepping stones and a balance beam.
The council’s Manager Sport and Recreation Liona Edwards said the master plan proposed a playground in a more central location with pathway connections that linked the playground to the internal and external path networks in the park.
“The proposed playground is located in an area with clear sightlines from the netball facility, playing fields and the soccer-cricket pavilion,” she said.
“The planned relocation of the playground from the perimeter of the sporting precinct into a more central location will move it away from the roadway and the nearby houses to a safer, more naturally visible location.”
Wodonga Council is committed to providing high quality play spaces in our city in line with the Playground Strategy 2016 -2020.
Before any major changes are made to these play spaces, the council seeks the community’s feedback on how the playgrounds are used.
A plan for the Kelly Park playground is now out for your feedback.
