About the project

We have renewed the local playground at Grovedale Park in Surrey Hills to improve the play experience for all children.

Construction started in April 2023 and was completed in October 2023.

You can find information about the project on our Boroondara website's Grovedale Park Playground page.

Community consultation

In December 2021, our community shared their memories, stories and ideas for the playground. You can read about this first consultation and what we heard on the Grovedale Park playground renewal Stage 1 consultation page.

We used this feedback to help us develop a draft design.

Our community then shared their thoughts on the draft design in March and April 2022. Your feedback helped shape the final design.

Our final design

The final design has kept the parts of the playground our community love most. It includes:

  • a new seating area
  • a new basket swing
  • trees and plantings we chose for their connection to the area
  • a new play structure and climbing cube with monkey bars
  • updated blueberry spinner and existing swings
  • an accessible path into and around the playground.

The playground's colour scheme is mainly green and timber to ensure it blends into the natural landscape.

You can learn about the final playground design by selecting the Hotspots below.
