Project update

Council has shortlisted a number of playspace suppliers and is in the process of finalising playspace equipment designs. The feedback received during the community engagement process was considered in developing the playspace design brief and includes:

  • An adventure play tower
  • Slides
  • Large swings
  • A flying fox

Read the community engagement outcomes report

The final design of the playspace, including computer-generated images, will be released once supply contracts are in place. We will update this page when the design is available and will provide this advice to those who provided feedback.

We anticipate that construction of the playspace will commence in early 2023. We will use onsite signage to advise the community of the exact construction timeframes.

Work has commenced on the new central car park and driveway access off Asgard Drive, with construction scheduled to be completed in September 2022.

View the car park design

The car park will be closed to vehicles overnight and the driveway will include speed humps to slow traffic when entering the park. Pedestrian safety fencing will also be installed along the central red footpath, where it meets the edge of the new car park, in an effort to prevent children running into the car park unattended. The use of the existing access driveway was subject to external traffic studies and was found to be suitable for the intended use.

Council’s Landscape Architects are also developing the landscape plans which will include:

  • Picnic facilities
  • Seating
  • Additional tree planting
  • Pathways

The toilet block is due to be installed in September 2022.

Adventure play is coming to Golden Fields!

Council recently received news that the State Government would contribute $750,000 to the $1.5 million project at Golden Fields, Golden Grove.

Golden Fields was established as part of the Golden Grove Development in the late 1980s. For the past 26 years the City of Tea Tree Gully has gradually developed this reserve into a highly utilised Regional Reserve.

What are we planning?

The new adventure playspace will be built in the lower section of the reserve and provide unique play opportunities for children aged 7 to 14 years. The development will also include an accessible toilet, street and park furniture, additional plantings, a car park for daytime use, and an access road.

The access road will come off Asgard Drive and provide a sealed access link, along with a shared use path to the playspace.

It’s anticipated that construction of the new playspace will commence in February 2022.

For more information, please refer to the high level concept plan which includes a map showing the location for the playspace and examples of ‘adventure’ style playspaces and equipment.

An Easy Read version of the project and high level concept plan is also available.

To get involved and have your say:

We are inviting the community to let us know their ideas about the type of play elements or equipment they would like to see in this ‘adventure’ style playspace, and to provide any other feedback on the high level concept plan.

  • Register here (if you haven't already, otherwise you can sign in when prompted)
  • Share your thoughts and ideas by completing the online feedback form
  • Have a question about this project? Ask us here using the Q&A tool below

We value your comments and would appreciate your feedback by 5pm, Wednesday 1 September 2021.

We know there will be lots of different views about what an ‘adventure’ style playspace might look like. We will take the community’s feedback on board to help guide the development of a detailed concept plan, subject to budget limitations and project objectives.
