How you had YourSay

The ACT Government is committed to delivering better play spaces across Canberra and providing people of different ages and abilities with fun, creative and engaging play experiences.

Thanks to everyone who provided feedback on the Kaleen play space upgrade. Feedback closed Wednesday 9 November 2022.

A What We Heard report has been released, summarising the key themes in community feedback. You can read the report here.

The community was also invited to provide feedback on play space improvements in Lyons. You can read the report here.

We are looking at

The ACT Government has reviewed play spaces in Kaleen and identified the Wakool Circuit play space as the preferred location for an upgrade. Regular users of Kaleen play spaces and the wider community were encouraged to have a look at the analysis undertaken prior to providing feedback.

During the six-week consultation period we received over 80 pieces of feedback. Some key insights include:

  • priorities for additional play equipment and elements are nature play, climbing structures and a basketball hoop or multi-use court
  • the most valued amenities are shade, furniture for sitting, eating, studying and picnic shelters
  • improving safety and accessibility for toddlers and smaller children is important and should be considered as part of any future play space upgrades.

We will use your views to

We are currently reviewing all feedback to inform the preliminary design and look forward to sharing the design in mid 2023 for further engagement with the community.
