How you had YourSay

The ACT Government is delivering suburban infrastructure upgrades across Canberra.

Six play spaces will receive significant upgrades over the next three years across Canberra in Kaleen, Ngunnawal, Chisholm, Gordon, Lyons and Aranda.

The play space upgrades will be delivered in consultation with the community and aim to provide people of different ages and abilities with fun, creative and engaging play experiences.

From 24 March to 5 May 2022 we sought feedback on upgrades the community would like to see in Aranda, Chisholm, Gordon and Ngunnawal.

A What We Heard Report has been released for each of the four suburbs. Click on the tiles below to read the community feedback for each suburb.

Next steps

Feedback from the community is being used to inform the design process and provide information on the most popular play space equipment, amenities and location for upgrades.

Consultation on the remaining two suburbs of Kaleen and Lyons will follow later this year.

In 2021 the ACT Government engaged the community on the draft ACT Play Space Strategy. The draft Strategy sets the direction for the future of play spaces in the ACT. It will guide the forward planning, delivery and management of play spaces including the play spaces and upgrades delivered as part of this consultation.

The community was invited to provide feedback on upgrades to a single play space in each of the suburbs of Ngunnawal, Chisholm, Gordon and Aranda. One location in each of the suburbs has been identified as the preferred location for upgrading, however we asked the community to review the preferred location and provide their views.

The community was also invited to provide feedback on play elements and equipment and other amenities to inform the upgrades.

Canberrans were also invited to provide feedback on the overall safety, security and accessibility at these play spaces such as fencing and paths.
