We’ve got a plan for play!

We want you to be involved in designing a fabulous new playground at FG Tricks Reserve that can be used for many years to come.

The new playground will link to the new children’s centre proposed for Fern Street Black Rock.

Bayside City Council is investing $10.3 million over 10 years to upgrade every playground in Bayside.

The playground designs will be shared for further community consultation in 2019.

April 2021 update

The playground plans have not progressed as we are awaiting the outcome of the VCAT decision for Fern Street Children's Centre to ensure the two projects are aligned.

October 2021 update

We are currently seeking feedback on the proposed designs for this playground. Head over to our Playground upgrades page for more information and to have your say.

November 2021 update

Consultation is now closed. Your feedback will inform the detailed design of this playground.
