Have your say on design for new playground at Gobbagombalin

Wagga Wagga City Council is planning a new playground and fitness equipment at Gobbagombalin and is asking the community to vote for their favourite design.

There are four designs for residents to choose from for the new playground, which will be located at the western end of Harris Road parkland.

Works and Playground Officer John Conlan said voting is now open online.

“We want local residents’ help in deciding which playground design is best for their neighbourhood,” Mr Conlan said.

“Playground designs encourage play between younger and older children and incorporate exciting features that will add extra appeal to the area.

“The four options all include traditional playground equipment, such as swings and slides, along with a picnic shelter and table setting as well as featuring bespoke elements.

“We won’t be putting in fencing or shade sails, but we will plant trees around the playground as a component of the project.”

Fitness equipment will also be installed close to the new playground and a concrete path constructed to provide improved access from Muttama Parade.

“Community input is an important part of Council’s playground improvement process,” Mr Conlan said.

“We recently finished installing two new playgrounds at Gissing Oval in Turvey Park and John Street in Kooringal.

“The designs for these playgrounds were chosen by residents through our online voting process.

“Now it’s the Gobbagombalin community’s chance to have their say on what will be installed in their neighbourhood."
