The Playground Proposal

The City of Greater Dandenong is planning to replace the existing old playground within Golding Court Reserve, Dandenong North with a new local playground. The location of the new playground is proposed to be retained in its existing location.

The upgrade to the playground area includes:
• A new local playground
• Rubber surfaced access paths to the swings and other equipment to improve all ability access
• A picnic table, park seating and bike hoop
• New tree planting

The playground for Golding Court Reserve will be designed to encourage active, challenging, imaginative and social play for both younger and older children.
