Jess says:

I love the added tree's as long as they will be large enough to provide shade as the design does not contain much.

Jacqui says:

What a disappointing upgrade. This is a bare minimum concept that will do nothing to attract families to play outdoors.

Not a lot at the moment . Looks like a council that don’t care and spend money on their employees not doing much rather than the community

I would change ....

Thanks for telling us what would you change about the concept plan. We will take this feedback and assess how it will affect the design.

Basically whatever you have planned for Craigieburn, if you could just do it here, that would be great.

Have toilets, some shade and some sporting equipment such as a basketball half court

Jessica says:

I would change adding a bike track around the playground. I see Craigieburn and Mickleham get so much more advanced designs. And a fence.

Amanda says:

The play equipment is not enough, more undercover areas with tables and chairs. Gated play area for safety. This plan needs to be improved

Sarah says:

I would personally like to see either a gym set up, or either enclosed dog park the back bit behind the playground. Or kids bike jumps.
