This Thursday night at 6.30pm in the Murrumbeena Park pavillion in Kangaroo rd there will be an opportunity for the local community to view the proposals for a range of new facilities at this much-used park. Along with other Crs. I will be attending this informative meeting to hear residents views on the proposals. The state govt has granted $250k to the project and Council has currently allocated $781k in the draft 2012/13 budget. from Glen Eira home page- Murrumbeena Park play space Glen Eira City Council is currently finalising a proposed play space project at Murrumbeena Park on Kangaroo Road. The proposal sees the removal of the existing playground adjacent to the main sports oval and the creation of a new play space in the eastern side of the park. The design incorporates a number of leading edge components and treatments which will make the playspace a model for future developments. The design goes beyond any existing playground and merges traditional play equipment with interactive landscaping, family picnic areas, tree plantings and facilities. It provides areas from toddlers to more active adolescents and can be accessed by wheelchairs and prams. In January, the Victorian Government announced a grant of $258,921 to assist in the construction of the Murrumbeena play space as part of Sport and Recreation Victoria’s Community Facility Funding Program. The project is listed as an item for consideration as part of Council’s 2012–13 Budget. An opportunity to view the plans will be available at Murrumbeena Park Pavilion, Kangaroo Road on Thursday 24 May from 6.30pm to7.30pm. This will include a brief presentation by the play space designer and Council officers will be available to clarify any issues and answer any questions.
