Forrest Street Reserve, Sunbury

Hume City Council is planning to replace the play equipment and improve the amenities at Forrest Street Reserve.

Planned on-site engagement activities for Forrest Street Reserve were cancelled early in the year due to COVID-19 restrictions. Council gathered demographic information, feedback from park maintenance staff, feedback provided directly to Council from residents and open space planning principles to prepare draft designs for the park. Two concepts have been prepared for the community to choose from.

Both designs include the following features:

  • Play equipment suitable for a range of age groups
  • Path connection from Light Court to Scott Street to create a circuit with the street path
  • Shelter and furniture
  • Maintaining an open grassed area for informal activities.

The key differences between the two designs:

  • Option 1 includes a basketball half court located near the playspace
  • Option 2 includes a ninja course located near the playspace.

There is also the opportunity to seek funding for exercise equipment designed to improve mobility, strength, balance and cognitive function. A space has been identified on both concepts for the equipment and we would like to gauge community interest. This equipment would be in addition to a ninja course or basketball half court and subject to funding.

Over 250 people visited this consultation page, with 180 of them further informing themselves by looking at more information. Fifty-five residents filled out the online survey telling us about their preferred design. Their input will guide the type of play equipment and landscape improvements going onto the site in 2020/21.
