| The Grange Reserve – playground redevelopment|
|Following public consultation last year, an updated landscape concept plan has been prepared for The Grange Reserve to reflect community feedback. |
The toddler/natural play area has been shifted closer to the UFO area to create one, unified play space.

Please find below a link to the updated landscape concept plan.
It is anticipated that construction will commence in June, 2013. For any additional information, please contact Council’s Co-ordinator Park Projects & Design, Steve Perumal on 9581-4377. E-mail: email@example.com
