Proposed Playspace Plans
View the plans with all of the detail before providing your feedback.
Rippleside Inclusive Play Space will be a unique place where people of all ages and abilities will be able to play together. Universal design principles have been used to create considered layouts that offer broad choice of activities and types of play.
The design aims to be safe, encourage social interactions, provide amenity for all users and appeal to all of our senses.
The City has partnered with the Touched By Olivia Foundation (and previously Variety – the Children’s Charity) to deliver this exciting project.
Rippleside Inclusive Play Space will replace the current playground located at Rippleside Park on Wadawurrung Country, 42 Bell Parade, Rippleside.
In developing the design for an inclusive playspace, we have considered:
The project will also include the upgrade of park amenities such as the toilet block (including a Changing Places facility), connecting path to the Bay Trail, accessible carparking spaces, additional seating and picnic facilities on the outside of the fenced playspace.
This current stage of engagement is our third and final round of engagement before we proceed to construction.
Please review the plans and 3D renders below and provide your feedback either via the "Quick Poll" or in more detail via the "Tell us your thoughts" button. Feedback closes Sunday 17 July.

The existing Geelong Community Adventure Playground was an amazing community-led project.
Community and stakeholder feedback was sought at thre distinct stages of this project.
