New equipment on the way: Strathbogie Shire Mayor Laura Binks thanked Whroovale estate residents for their quick responses to a recent survey.

A new play space is on the way for Strathbogie Shire residents.

A recent online survey revealed that those living in the Whroovale Estate north of Nagambie were very keen to have children’s outdoor equipment in the open space area bordered by Kheminda Cres and Jean Claude Ave.

The current open space includes an existing path and several advanced trees.

Strathbogie Shire Mayor Laura Binks thanked the Whroovale Estate residents for their quick responses to the survey.

“Our Share Strathbogie site lit up when we put out the QR code directing people to our interactive engagement hub to receive their suggestions,” Cr Binks said.

“Overwhelmingly, most of the 112 people who responded to the survey suggested they wanted a fun area with children’s play equipment as well as some green space and a small percentage wanted some fitness equipment.

“The plan now is to install an irrigation system through the site and at the same time we will be going to tender for a company to design and construct the play structures.”

The play equipment will be directed towards the three-to-eight-year age group and it is expected the equipment will be installed by the end of the year.

Also included in the plan will be shade sails and some park benches and picnic tables.
